KillEmAll v2.x - Announcement and Usage Instructions!

Postby Nick » Tue Feb 19, 2013 10:32 am

Just making sure this info gets out there...

I discovered a new method of enabling you to launch the same program to have it behave differently, specifically holding down keys while starting the app. This has enabled me to bundle 3 new operational modes into the same KillEmAll.scr executable.

Operational modes:
  • Classic mode: Execute KillEmAll.scr normally.
  • Debug mode: Hold CTRL down while executing KillEmAll.scr
    Asks you prior to terminating each individual process, useful for troubleshooting.
  • Service mode: Hold SHIFT down while executing KillEmAll.scr
    Old KillEmAllPlus theory, but improved (using technology from my recently released app, ETS, so no more interactive services detection prompts on Vista-8.)
    Runs under the system account for more process killing power.
    Installs itself as a service which will continually restart if terminated by malware, until the job is done.
Other notes:
  • Also included are new fixes for accidentally killing processes that trigger a Windows shutdown.
  • KillEmAllPlus.scr is now obsolete for several reasons, and should be deleted from your collection.

Is there a way to enable the CTRL, and SHIFT functions from a batch file, vbs script, or switch? killemall.scr /debug, or killemall.scr /service
