Force Quit & Restart Running Programs With This Eye Candy Tool

The Windows task manager allows you manage all the running applications, processes and services. You can start new processes, stop the ones already running, change their priority, view PC performance and CPU & Memory usage, change the priority of different processes etc. In short, the Windows task manager is a complete process management console to manage the running processes, and is useful for both basic and advanced users. However, because of having all the process management options, sometimes it may appear a tad too advanced for basic users. When an application goes to not responding mode, you can shut it down using the Windows task manager, but there is no option to just restart it instantly. You have to kill it first and then restart it again manually. Today, we have an application for Windows called Task ForceQuit that allows you to Quit tasks, Restart them, Restart the explorer.exe process, Restart the whole system or completely Shutdown the computer, all from a single interface. Keep reading to find out more about Task ForceQuit.

During installation, you are given the option to download and install CleanMyPC, along with the installation of Task ForceQuit. Making sure to uncheck it in order to avoid getting unwanted software in your computer.
