    End Procee Tree

    There is an option in the Task Manager's "Processes" panel called "End Process Tree". What does it do?

    Thanks,
    John

    According to Microsoft Windows XP - End a process with Task Manager:
    <hr>To end a process and all processes directly or indirectly created by it, on the Process tab, right-click the process you want to end, and then click End Process Tree.

    If you end the process tree for an e-mail program such as Microsoft Outlook, for example, you will also end related processes such as mapisp32.exe, the MAPI spooler.<hr>

    In addition to Han's link, try Understanding Windows 2000 & Windows NT 4.0 System and Process Activity. Although the "Event" has already happened, there are PowerPoint slides and tool references which you may find helpful.

    One note, be EXTREMELY cautious about using "End process tree" - I accidently killed one for MS PowerPoint that had links to Word and Excel files. My system crashed and I had a couple of corrupted files.
