More zombie process destroying scripts

Kill Your Zombie Process I wrote an article a few months back entitled Killing zombie Google Chrome processes. In the post, I talk about the fact Google Chrome can spin off multiple processes during a browsing session. When you close the browser window sometimes Chrome can leave behind several zombie processes in the Windows Task Manager.

Within the article, I presented two ways to solve this problem. I showed a PowerShell command and I also mentioned a fix through a batch script I created. I uploaded a copy of the Stop Google Chrome Processes batch script file to the TechNet Gallery.

Since then, I have created a similar batch file for other web browsers including Firefox, Explorer, Edge and Opera. All can be downloaded from the TechNet Gallery via the links below.
