Hi, was not sure if I was to post this question here.

I have an application that manages my wireless/wired connection.

Problem:
The problem with the appication is its not force closing itself. I can open and close the application, but when I relaunch the appilcation again it gives a message saying its already open and I need to open taskmanager everytime to force close the applicaiton.

Is there anyway I can auto force close the application when exiting an application?

If you don't want to reinstall, you should contact the software publisher, maybe drop them an email or something, they know about their product better.

Reboot in safe-mode no networking and uninstall it there.

Search for Pskill , download and unzip pskill.exe into your Windows / system32 folder. Then create a shortcut on your desktop, for example
pskill explorer.exe
(replace explorer.exe with your appz name)
Just run this shortcut when you want to close that application.

Hi glavin, can you explain this shortcut into more detail. I have download the application and myfile.exe is on my desktop. How can I create a short that also reflects back to my application as you described above?

OK, First download http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/PsTools.zip
Now extract pskill.exe from that zip file and move it to your C:\Windows\System32 folder
Next right click on your desktop Select New and then click Shortcut.
In the dialog box that follows, Type pskill and the name of the application that you used to close through Task manager.
For example pskill wirelessconnect.exe

That's it, the next time you wish to close that application just double click this shortcut. This will save you from opening Task manager time and again.
