Ever need to kill a process on a remote Windows computer that you can’t login to and the user is not there? Taskkill can help. I am not sure when this utility was introduced, but I would think it is on Windows 7. I did this from a Windows 8.1 machine.

You can do it by PID:

taskkill /S computernameORipaddress /u username /PID pidnumber

Or executable image name:

taskkill /S computernameORipaddress /u username /FI “IMAGENAME eq imagename”

Here is an example. This kills Outlook on a computer with an IP address of using the Administrator account:

C:\>taskkill /S /u Administrator /FI “IMAGENAME eq outlook.exe”
Type the password for administrator:********

SUCCESS: The process with PID 2576 has been terminated.
