I am trying to kill chrome on my computer. I ran command prompt as an admin and ran:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq chrome.exe"
This returned one item:
Image Name PID Session Name Session# Mem Usage ========================= ======== ================ =========== ============ chrome.exe 8336 Console 2 420,324 K
However, I couldn't kill it with /IM:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /IM "chrome.exe" /F
Because it returned:
ERROR: The process "chrome.exe" with PID 8336 could not be terminated. Reason: There is no running instance of the task.
So I tried to kill it with /PID:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /PID 8336 /F
Which returned something similar:
ERROR: The process with PID 8336 could not be terminated. Reason: There is no running instance of the task.
Attempting to kill it through task manager doesn't work either. How do I kill chrome without restarting my computer?
