6 Ways to Terminate Multiple Processes at Once In Windows

Sometimes, while using programs, they may stop responding or any program may be harmful for our System so we need to stop it and mostly people do it through opening Task Manager. But the one main issue or drawback of Task Manager is that it only closes one program at a time. In some cases many programs need to be close at the same time because they are affecting our System.

If there is more than one process which is causing bad effect on System, we have to stop them at once, because if we close them one by one, the other related process will start affecting the System. That’s why we need to make them cease at same time.

As we know Windows Task Manager is not capable of doing this so we have to move for using any Third Party tool. Following is list of all best tools that can kill multiple Windows Processes at once.
