Possible KillSwitch bug?

Every time I try to kill explorer.exe with killswitch (the newest one) explorer is terminated but immediately spawns again. It’s look like it was restarted rather than terminated.

When I terminated explorer.exe with task manager or ProcessHacker it was killed and didn’t spawn again.

I’m running Windows 7 x32. Can anyone confirm this?

confirmed on win7 x64

Use an exit status of 1 instead of 0 when calling TerminateProcess.

I noticed the same thing had affected my using WinPatrol as well. But oddly enough, when I had turned to Killswitch to terminate the Explorer.com to cease it from its continuous operation, I had no difficulties in doing so. Strange

Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit

Closing explorer.exe with Killswitch closes it and immediately spawns again. I am on Win 7 SP1 x86.

Hi guys, this will be fixed in next release.


Thanks for letting us know Haibo. :slight_smile:
