in thread A killall for Windows

That would be a natural behaviour, I guess. What happens (judging by the sound of it), is that it finds no processes in the process list, probably because it tries to find NT processes. :)

Maybe should patch it up to croak on no processes returned (that would never be able to happen on a "supported" platform).

Thanks for the help!

    I tried this on an XP box and while it did return "no process killed" it did kill the process that I passed it. So not sure what is going on there. Pretty cool gizmo I like it -
