I had closed an instance of
utorrent. The task no longer appears in Applications, however the process
utorrent.exe appears in Processes tab of Task Manager. I tried to kill using:
- Kill process button in Task Manager
- Kill process option in SysInternals Process Explorer
- Suspend, resume, restart in SysInternals Process Explorer
- command prompt by using the command
taskkill /f /im utorrent.exe
Stop-Processcommandlet in Windows PowerShell.
All of these have failed, the process just doesn't end. I cannot restart uTorrent because of the existing process running. Is there anyway I can kill this without having to resort to a system reboot ? I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, OEM.
