With the Win+ R combo summon services.msc. Right click on the service Avast Antivirus and click Stop. Before it stops, Avast will warn you that the service is being stopped. Only if you are confident that your computer is safe click the Ok button and the service should stop.

The PID of a process is an unique identifier. 2 or more instances cannot have the same PID and the PID is managed internally by the Operating System Kernell, it cannot be changed at all. As far as I understand this question, you mentioned taskkill I'm assuming this refers to Windows's taskkill command. If you need to kill processes by Image name, use /f ...

In Windows (I assume from "taskkill" that you're talking about Windows), the process ID is picked by the operating system. It is not something you can "set". It is not predictable, either. Sorry about that.

The multiple instances all have different PIDs as you've stated, so why do you need to change them? Just use TaskKill to kill on the basis of specific PIDs instead of the process name. From TaskKill /?: /PID processid Specifies the PID of the process to be terminated. Use TaskList to get the PID. Edit: Here's a batch file ...

No - not all services run in different processes. It's possible (and common) that a group of services run under control of shared host (svchost.exe). You may find more information in wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svchost.exe But even if [a service was a shared one], it's pid (or more precise - PID of its host) would be shown. In your ...

If you will look at the status of these services, you'll see that they are stopped, therefore obviously there's no process associated with them.

To get the path of of the program using a certain pid you can use: ps -a [PID]

GIS usually refers to a geographic information system of some sort. Some examples might be geolocating network traffic and overlaying it on a map. What service/application does this HA pair run? Anything to do with geolocation or GPS or mapping?

Try a cleanup of your video card drivers, complete reinstallation, look for the cleanup tools around the web. If you have any attached / hooked drivers to dwm form apps that style the explorer and desktop then you should temporarily disable them. Also, try testing video memory. How can I test my GPU memory/RAM?.

Turns out this was a virus/trojan after all - CoinMiner, which was either "idle" and something I removed caused it to wake up, or some cleanup software I've installed brought it with it. Anyhow, when I realized it might be a trojan I have installed this anti virus and it worked. (Needless to say, Windows Defender neither alerted of the trojan nor cleaned ...

If you're just looking at the PID, a crontab is probably the wrong place to do this. You might just want to write a script that checks periodically and then shuts the machine down instead. On Linux, you could do: while [ -d /proc/1234 ] ; do sleep 30; # or however long you want the interval to be done /sbin/shutdown -h now That will need to be run as root ...

Firefox runs flash in a separated process. Usually I kill the flash process through the task manager, and firefox is unblocked. In the plugins, I set flash with to "Ask to activate". This stop youtube videos from starting when I restore my previous firefox session. An alternative to "ask to activate" is the Flash block add-ons for firefox. Anyway, ...

It depends from the column of ps you have activated. If you see in man ps in the section STANDARD FORMAT SPECIFIERS you will find first: %cpu %CPU cpu utilization of the process in "##.#" format. Currently, it is the CPU time used divided by the time the process has been running (cputime/realtime ratio), expressed as a percentage. It will not add up ...

A while back I wrote a great (and perhaps somewhat ugly) batch file that does it, it requires gnuwin32's sed and cut. I wrote it 'cos I was horrified how much RAM modern browsers take up and I wanted to see quickly. I am currently trying to neaten it up but this is it as it is. So, it's saying that Chrome is using 3.4GB ...

The general answer is: You can't, not accurately. Assuming you're asking about RAM (physical memory) and not virtual - Windows publishes two relevant counters for each process, the total working set and the private (to the process) working set. (PerfMon will show you these.) Task Manager shows the "private" and "shared" (added together these would give the ...

Windows Sysinternals Process Explorer will do this. This is a good tool for several other jobs as well, for instance it allows you to find which process is locking a file. Also, you can browse to chrome://memory-redirect/ in chrome which will give you the stats just for chrome.

I don't know how to do this in general, but to measure total memory usage of Chrome you can write about://memory to address bar. The Summary section shows total memory usage of all Chrome processes.
