Process.Kill() permissions

The question: are any user groups besides Administrators permitted to kill
processes?

Need more info? Happy to oblige:

- I'm writing a business object that will run as a service under a specific
username (won't run as System).

- the object creates an instance of Word and automates a Mail Merge. (Yes, I
know this is not recommended -- that's another thread for another day...)

- Winword.exe hangs indefinitely if any error occurs (damn modal dialogs). So,
I have code that cycles through the processes and kills any "winword" entries.
It cleans up nicely on my machine because I added the Service username to the
Admin group. Any other environment -- access denied. I won't score Admin
rights on Dev and Production, but I may have a chance at a less God-like
usergroup that can kill processes, if one exists.

Thanks.
Darren
