Terminate capability ....

Hello,

I'm new to Python. I have a small task to do. I need to be able to
find a running app (preferrably by name) and kill it. This is for the
XP environment. What is best way to do this?
Thanks,

1/ search the Windows XP APIs for such a task
2/ found out how you can call these APIs from Python
Thanks,
You're welcome.
