If a resource issue and a remote computer, you could use "taskkill" to kill a remote process to free resources. (IE. firefox.exe)

comment How to upload files through VPS to Ubuntu server using PuTTY
Publicly recommending band aid solutions to novices is a good way to misrepresent a kluge as a best practice, that's my only concern. Why not recommend packet filtering, port knocking, denyhosts, or portsentry instead? Are those solutions less robust for preventing benign programmatic traffic?

It's not a good idea no matter how many times it's suggested.

Moving to a non-standard port is still security through obscurity. Any port scanner will still catch it. If you want to restrict access, use packet filtering.

As this question concerns the operation of a single computer, it is better suited for Superuser.com. Please do not re-post, as it will likely be relocated on your behalf.

comment Top ten security tips for non-technical users
In my professional experience, I've allowed the developers and technical people local admin or elevated privileges with minimal support issues and never malware issues. The average end-user has severely restricted access.

comment Top ten security tips for non-technical users
Ah cool, thanks. It was a bit disheartening! I spent some time on my answer. In regards to the local admin thing, I agree with you somewhat. It depends on the company and technology environment. End users have been shown to sometimes to be okay with admin in technical companies or highly technical groups. I've seen both sides of the spectrum work. A colleague of mine is responsible for an intranet this is composed of employees with no technical skill and the business requires they have admin, where he regularly has to deal with malware issues on varying scales.

I should have posted my response last night. Unfortunately, it was late and I wanted to give it the proper attention.
