More process fun....

P: n/a
I seem to be having a devil of a time killing a process....

If I launch an applicaton such as notepad.exe as a Process, I can kill
it with no problem. However, if I launch a particulare application (it's
a shell application that does some lengthy math processing) as a Process
and attempt to kill it, the Process returns properly with an Exited
event, but the shell window continues to be open and processing. My
guess is that this math app actually calls some other threads or
processes that are running in the background, and it is waiting for them
to exit also....?

Once I've launched a process, is there a way to absolutely kill it by
making sure that any other processes or threads spawned by it are killed
as well?
