Taskkill not producing results

Posted on

QUESTION :

After killing a process with taskkill “successfully”:

SUCCESS: The process "problematic.exe" with PID 6896 has been terminated.

it still shows up in the tasklist with the same PID. What could be the reason / how to make the kill a success?

ANSWER :

Try using the /f switch to force the process to be killed.

If it still doesn’t kill it then it could be it has threads still running which would cause it to show up in tasklist.
