    I know this is for Windows 7 tutorials however I was wondering if this works on any other operating systems?

    I’m running windows 7 ultimate and I purposely got a virus on one of my dummy pcs and when I went to go kill the process (of the virus) it just kept coming back. I ran the virus scanner it said it successfully removed, had to reboot. Then after reboot my task manager was disabled used this program reenabled it. But that virus process was still there and could not kill it. So basically what I’m asking is do you know of a program to be able to by pass the virus and kill the process? I tried killbox but it does not work on windows 7.

      You will have very little chance to kill the virus by using Windows commands. Try to install a good antivirus, understand which virus you have and, if the antivirus is not able to remove it, search for a removal tool specific to that virus, download it and run it.

      Try using Process Hacker (also install KProcessHacker in the advanced options), after install and run press Ctrl+Shift+R Select the user NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM and run taskkill /f /IM “virus exe.exe”

      This program doesn’t hide running programs. It just disables the task manager. Nothing else.
