I did it....

Although NT is suposed to have the possibility to kill an application that stopped respondig or otherwise is misbehaving, sometimes they just can't be killed as they are reported as being debug and, thus, the only available option is to reboot the computer.

I had, this morning, one aplication that was occupying 140MBytes of virtual memory space and I had 5 instances of it.
To make it worse, everytime I tryied to kill it it oppened the debuger (I have development tools here, on this computer) so I was seeing as the only option to have to reboot the computer.
But I didn't surrender and I managed to find out hou to kill the offending application without the need of a reboot.

I know it is not much but, nevertheless, it makes me happy!

So I can now go for rebbot if I want to, not beeing obliged to do so!

On another front, I do wish you all a very good and productive day!
I'm about to go to lunch and then, back to work.
