I've just finished my Process-Killer DLL.
You can get it at:
It includes both a binary version and the source code (~30kB)
Contact me here if you need help using it, or to report bugs... :)
Enjoy it! :P
Edit: BTW, sorry for flooding the forum this days, I needed to finish it ASAP :) thanks for your patience with me! :winamp:

Cool, thx, have been waiting for that! is it compatible with windows 98 too?

Yes, it should work in all Windows...

On the manual page for this plugin (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/archive/viewpage.php?pageid=271) DITMan mentions an error return code (605 = Unable to load PSAPI.DLL) which seems to imply that the plugin relies on psapi.dll.
According to this page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/perfmon/base/process_status_helper.asp) it will only work with 2K/XP/2003 Server (and NT if you install psapi.dll from the link given on that page). No mention is made of whether or not 9x/me systems have psapi.dll or if the downloaded psapi.dll would work on them if they don't.

It loads these functions on runtime using GetProcAddress. On Windows 9x is loads Toolhelp32 functions, so it seems OK to me. Still worth a check though :)

seems to work fine with windows 98, tested that now, good work!

Glad to see it works!

It was tested before posting it in Win XP, 2000 and 98 but you know how Windows works... It might run perfectly in my computer and hang another one, so that's why I said that it should work ;)
