    There was a way to do it, but it doesn't work anymore

    C by itself doesn't work

    You need the alternative language called control-C
    That's much better for these sorts of task.

    Salem was joking. Control-C is the key combination to send a SIGINT in *NIX.

    What operating system do you want to kill a process in?

    Afraid not - I'm more of a UNIX man, myself. However, there are plenty of Windows people here.

    I would suggest you try your question in the Windows forum, but that would be a cross-post. Perhaps some benevolent moderator can move this thread to the Windows forum ;)
