I am using cygwin on Windows7. I tried to kill process on cygwin using kill -9, but it said 'No such process'.

 $ ps

     3976    6820    3976       5100  pty1    3042872 08:38:34 /usr/bin/ps

 $ kill -9 4404
-bash: kill: (4404) - No such process
 $ kill -9 6988
-bash: kill: (6988) - No such process

How can I kill those process. I tried kill that shell and start over again, that does not work.
