    Hello, I am a little scetchy on the use of Terminate process. Dont worry, the use will not be illegal, however I need it to kill a specific process. My understanding of the MSDN library can only take me so far. This is what I know..

    HANDLE hProcess = openProcess("I want my specifc process to go here", blah, blah);
    TerminateProcess(hProcess, 0);
    What goes in the space where it says "I want specific process"? I am looking everywhere but all I get is some stuff on SYNCRONIZE WINDOW or something like that. I don't understand tht concept. Any help is appreciated.

    This should be moved to the Windows Programming section, it has little to do with the C language.
