Hi guys
I want code or method in VB.NET application to kill the basic processes which can not be killed, for example antivirus operations

In 7 and XP systems can not be killed with taskmanger or process explorer, but in the system win 8 can be easily killed by using taskmanger

Is there a code to kill these processes

Antivirus program might have self-defence, like terminating its process. also killing critical-process can make BlueScreen of death. be careful, see

I do not know if it would work but you could try the managed class; System.Diagnostics.Process.Kill

or the unmanaged: TerminateProcess[^]
