WPTerm is a simple console-driven program that allows a user to list processes and terminate a process, no questions asked. It was designed as a replacement for the Windows 2000 Task Manager, as the Windows 2000 Task Manager has a design error in it that disallows a process to end if it has the same name as a critical OS file. This allows for malicious programs to run without easily having them shut down. (See bugtraq ID 3033) WPTerm fixes this problem.
