View Full Version : Killing a process that reports "Access Denied"

Unable to kill process
Access is denied.
Is a little log from PsKill. Also Taskmanager cannot kill the process either.
Is there a way to kill a process even though we don't have "access" to it?
And yes, I'm logged on as an administrator

Are you talking about Vista or XP? Vista has some protected processes that, according to what I've heard, no one can touch.
If it's XP, that's just weird... Maybe some GPO setting?

It's with XP.
I remember nsProcess:Killprocess would do the job but I installed the plugin and it's telling me nsProcess:Killprocess is an invalid command. Can someone please find me the whole nsProcess plugin?

the actual export is called nsProcess::_KillProcess (not sure why it has the underscore to be honest)
are you using the nsProcess.nsh include file and its macros?

Yeah I fixed the nsProcess problem, but it still cannot kill that process. Any more ideas?
