It may happen that a program becomes unresponsive and cannot be closed even though you use the Task Manager (CTRL+Shift+Esc) to kill its process. Fortunately, you can use the Taskkill command to kill unresponsive programs in Windows 7.
1. Press Windows Logo + R, type cmd and press Enter to launch the command prompt window.
2. Run now this command to display all running tasks and processes:
3. From the displayed list, locate the unresponsive task or program to close. When located, use its PID displayed in the second column, then run this command:
taskkill /PID 3732 /F
Replace 3732 with your program or process PID (Process ID). This command will force the program to close. If the operation is successful, you will see this result:
>taskkill /PID 3732 /F
SUCCESS: The process with PID 3732 has been terminated.
