Hi All

It’s been a long time, but I found a small amount of time to tap together
another handy free utility. One thing I’ve been dealing with a lot lately is
VDI and RDS sessions, where people say that the system is slow. When I
investigate I see the same thing every time – Internet Browser processes that
have been left on and minimised by users for hours, and resources getting
eaten up as a result. Well I can fix that with TSProKil – and free as always.
There is a 64bit and 32 bit version available. I hope you can use it for your

TSProKil is a command-line utility to Terminate named processes that have been

running for a prescribed period of time. (Default 60 minutes)

This utility was written for the purpose of terminating user processes that

run in a VDI or TS/ RDS session for a long period of time.

Specifically, processes such as Internet Browsers, which use valuable system

resources, are often left on by end users, creating system bloat. By running

this tool at regular intervals, Internet Browsers that have been running for

more than the prescribed time can be terminated, returning those resources

back to the environment

This tool could be simply run from the command line at any time, or added

as a SCHEDULED TASK for regular termination of named processes, reducing the

overall resource usage for the server environment.

TSProKil will only function when executed by a user with ADMIN rights.


TSProKil [/Process:<processname>] [/Runtime:<runningtime>] [/LIST] [/?]

/Process:<processname> - Terminate any instance of the named process.

The processname must be the

executable name such as

/Runtime:<runningtime> - Terminate named process based on running

time in minutes (Default: 60

/LIST - List all running processes and running times.

/? - show this help file

TSProKil with no parameters lists the help information.


This command will list all running processes and running times.

E.G. TSProKil /PROCESS:MyApp.exe

This command will terminate any instance MyApp.exe that has been

running for 60 minutes or more (Default).

E.G. TSProKil /PROCESS:MyApp.exe /RUNTIME:180

This command will terminate any instance MyApp.exe that has been

running for 180 minutes or more.

The program returns a list of the running processes and those terminated.

To store the output run the following command:

TSProKil.EXE [options]>TSProKil.txt

This utility is FREEWARE and was written by Warren Simondson of

Ctrl-Alt-Del IT Consultancy, Australia. www.ctrl-alt-del.com.au

Although written for Terminal Server and Citrix environments, this application

will function on non-TS/Citrix workstations and servers.

This application has been tested on all Windows platforms:

The freeware version is offered AS IS. Ctrl-Alt-Del IT Consultancy has made

every effort possible to ensure that TSProKil is free of any bugs or errors,

however in no way is TSProKil to be considered error or bug free.
