About the software

KillEmAll is a ‘panic‘ button with an ‘ask questions later‘ attitude, designed to identify and terminate all non-essential running programs. Great for quickly closing unwanted apps, system inspection, and even malware removal!

Why use it?

The best usage case for KillEmAll to most users is to close all open web browser windows if you get a suspected malicious popup while visiting a website.  The reason you don’t simply close or “X out” the popup is because malicious code can be run even if you click the X button — it is after all just another button, you might as well be clicking “OK” or “Yes, please do what you want with my PC…” but if you don’t click anything and KillEmAll does the work, forcing the application’s process to close without any additional code execution.

    • Other tasks that benefit from the advantage of quickly and forcefully closing all applications:
      • before performing maintenance on your PC,
      • before and during general troubleshooting,
      • or before playing resource intensive games.

KillEmAll System Requirements

  • All versions work with Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and Windows 11.
  • Windows XP compatibility has been officially abandoned in current releases, and no future support will be provided. KillEmAll does terminate processes on Windows XP, but whether or not all of the menu prompts work as expected is not guaranteed. The automation-based command line arguments /auto and /log should function as expected.
  • v21.12.21 and above now work when run from inside Windows Terminal (and does not terminate any other tabs in the same Windows Terminal session.)
