SUMMARY

You can stop a remote process by using the Scheduler service.

MORE INFORMATION

  1. Start Scheduler Service on the computer running the process you want to kill.
  2. Copy Kill.exe from the Windows NT 3.5x Resource Kit to the target computer's System32 directory, typically C:\Winnt35\System32.
  3. From a command prompt on the remote computer, type:

    AT \\TARGET_MACHINE execute_time "kill process_name"

    For Example, type:

    AT \\NTSERVER1 13:00 "kill clock"
NOTE: If the process name is not the same as the executable name, you can get the process name by using Pviewer.exe, also from the Resource Kit. Also, the remote user must have proper access to the target machine.
