    Default Easy way to kill a non-responding program in Windows 7?

    Sometimes/somewhere I read about an faster way to kill a non-responding program than using ctr-alt-del.

    Anyone knowing of this as I can't find anything about it now.

    Hi ,

    use the command line to run a Task Killer

    Windows + R
    cmd > tasklist >
    Choose the PID of the process you want to stop (for example 3008)
    taskkill /PID 3008

    and the task will be terminated successfully

    Regards ,

    Thanks

    Tried that, but when I click on the shortcut a window pops up and disappear faster than lightning. Is it because I at the moment don't have any frozen program?
