some programs also will work with ctrl+Pause (break)

I need to get rid of that nasty habbit cause it only works sometimes.

Long live CTRL+C

Alt+F4 is my favorite :)

Though it sounds like you want an actual command that can be run through the command prompt to end a program... If that's the case, and that's the only way to do it, then I don't really know of a solution. I've never discovered a 'kill' command in DOS, and I'm pretty sure MS didn't include one.

I like alt-f4.
Gives me this warn fuzzy feeling inside.

But not half as much as the reset button on the front :D

If the program is still responding, then CTRL-C or CTRL-Break should kill it. If it stops responding, then you can kill it with ALT-F4 it, or click the X button. Doing either should crash the 16bit subsystem that's running the program, effectively killing it.

I finally found it, its actually kill.exe and it is included on the Windows 98 resource CD. For some reason MS only includes it on the resource CD with 98, but puts in the actual OS and the resource CD with 2k Server. Thanks for the help though.
