Been looking for something that automatically strangles/kills/slaughters a process through (same power as using the Task manager) whenever you click the X on an application because I'm getting fed up with all the freezes and unnecessarily long "unloadings".

Does something like this exist for Windows?

Your slowing down can be caused by several factors. To resolve it may not require any special program as you suggest but some steps to help your system run better. Please do the following steps and post the requested logs and\or screenshots so I can get a better ideal of what you have going on.


Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.









Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

There's nothing wrong with my PC (at the moment) rather with various kinds of software which consists with bulky programming. I know this because I have used them over a wide variety of computers both new and old.

I'm simply looking for a way to enforce shutdowns smoothly.

OK well I know of any such software.
Since my suggestions are not correct for you then I will move aside and let someone else assist. Good luck. :)
