If you ever need to script the removal of an application or need to run an install or upgrade that requires the application to be closed, you can use PsKill to kill all the open processes of a certain file so that you can be sure the task will complete successfully without any files being locked.

PsKill will terminate a local or remote processes. You can find out more at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb...

PSKill is excellent to kill executables, but that is already available in Windows, the best feature is that it can be used remotely, which are most of the tools of Systinternals Suite.
You are describing them one by one, Which could be better done based on the Suite :)
