    If you are that new, what gives you the right to say what we should or shouldn't do in this thread?

    Have a read of this:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc301495.aspx

    It tells you how to find processes and windows based on application/window name. If you can find the name of the process, you can determine if it is called "hypkey.exe", and if so, terminate it.

    Correct. Or do you know of any particular reason that wouldn't work?

    I mean, the call to TerminatProcess() in itself isn't hard - you just pass in the handle of the process and some integer to represent the exit-code.

    Of course, there are some security aspects too - you need to be the owner of the process or have administrator rights on the system - so you can not kill a process you are not in control of unless you are administrator.
