This is a useful program that you may not need often, but it's handy to have in the toolbox.
"End It All is an ultra powerful Windows process killer than attempts to rid your system of those files that have either frozen your system or simply refuse to budge.
However, unlike Windows very basic process manager, it also indicates to what programs each process relates to which stops you shutting down anything essential which for me, is the real beauty of this program."
And it does exactly that. There are some programs that are very hard to kill, but EndItAll will stop them dead.
Here it is running on my computer.
This can also be useful if you suspect you have a virus running that may be stopping the installation of anti virus programs. You can kill anything that looks dodgy.
Boot in Safe Mode if you need to... hold down F8 at boot.
