ProcessKO is a seemingly simple yet powerful application that enables you to terminate currently running processes that no longer respond to commands without administrative privileges. It lets you mark favorite processes for quick access.
Since this is a portable product, installation is not a prerequisite. It means that you can just drop the executable file on any location of the hard drive and run it directly, as well as save ProcessKO to a USB flash drive to launch it on any PC easily. Plus, the registry's settings remain altered.
The tool is packed in a standard interface with a plain layout, where you can kill any active process with one click, as well as create a favorites list with any of the currently running processes or custom apps installed on the disk.
Furthermore, it's possible to set schedule an app to terminate at a specific time when you're away from the computer for example, provided that you enter expert mode. You can make the main frame stay on top of other windows, minimize it to the system tray area, and activate a power option, like shutdown, log off, or restart.
The app offers multilingual support, has a good response time and worked well during our testing, without hanging, crashing or prompting error notifications. We haven't encountered any unpleasant surprises. To sum it up, ProcessKO may not be feature-rich, but it supplies you with a simple solution to killing processes that normally need administrative rights, as well as for scheduling their termination.
