How do I kill a number of individual processes in one go within XP ?

From time to time you may find that you have a number of processes (with the same name) that you want to terminate. Rather then kill each one individually you can run the following command to kill the complete lot in one go.

C:\Documents and Settings\admin>tskill [process name]

Example : Below shows you how you would kill all of your Internet explorer windows.

C:\Documents and Settings\admin>tskill iexplore
