Auto Kill Any Process or A.K.A.P for short, is a very useful utility, to kill Multiple-Sets of different processes at once, by simply launching the program. It can also automatically monitor and kill processes at user specified intervals. These features can come in handy if you want to clean up a batch of related processes, after working with any application, or if you want to clear a set of expendable processes before starting another RAM intensive application, or to automatically get rid of reincarnating processes, in just a few seconds, instead of using the tedious task manager.

A.K.A.P uses the HITLIST concept, wherein, the names of the processes, chosen to be terminated by the user, are saved in a file with its extension as “.hitlist”. This Hitlist is then passed to the program whenever it is executed, so that, all these processes can be killed at once, by simply launching the program or by using the timer feature.


  • Ability to kill multiple processes, at once, from a single hitlist
  • Ability to automatically kill processes that keeps coming back, even after their termination
  • Add to windows startup, to terminate stubborn startup processes
  • Can run in SILENT MODE – without any prompts or messages (one time configuration needed)
  • Can be minimized to System Tray to silently MONITOR and KILL reincarnating processes
  • Allows multiple hitlists, with a choice to save any one particular combination
  • Choose the above combination during execution or in the settings window
  • Kill individual running processes, useful for NOT RESPONDING processes
  • Kill individual processes, from a hitlist also, instead of killing ALL of them
  • Provides log entry for the each termination, so users can know the termination status of each process
  • Error log also available, to help understand any problem and to report bugs
  • Auto clearing of termination logs, to save disk space

What’s new in Version 2.2:

  • Auto Kill Timer – repeatedly monitors and kills reincarnating processes at regular user-specified intervals
  • Some changes in user-interface

Bug fixes in Version 2.2:

  • Minor modifications to avoid the application crashing under certain circumstances.
