I have a process (more specifically, multiple processes with the exact same name) running that I cannot kill no matter what I try. The reason I am asking this question here even though I know it's been asked before is because I've tried every answer that I can find to no avail.
Obviously opening task manager and trying to end the process does not work, so here are other things I have tried:
- Locating the folder which the process is running from. Access Denied.
- Going into the properties of the folder, going under securities tab, and tried to change the permissions. Doing this from the admin account, still access is denied.
- Downloading Process Hacker. Seems like this app would do exactly what I need, but unfortunately the program terminates as soon as the window opens every single time running it.
- Using the program LockHunter to try and either delete or access the folder which is running the processes, as this is what the software is supposed to be able to do, however it just tells me AGAIN, the bain of my existence, Access Denied.
I'm just completely at a loss at this point. Any help with killing these processes or getting this folder off of my computer would be incredibly appreciated.
