Windows 7: Can I edit the Taskbar Menu?

Can I edit the Taskbar Menu?

Well my question is, can i edit the right-click menu on the taskbar? For example, you can edit the "normal" right-click menu to contain whatever you want, is that also possible with the Taskbar Menu?

What I wanna do is implement the menu "Kill process" on the taskbar, so that i don't have to go to the Task Manager to terminate a process.

And please don't ask my why i wanna do this, or how stupid it is to terminate a process "just cause 'I' want". I don't care about that, I just wanna do it, if it's possible.

You are always going to get the warnings about killing a process, it's an obligation. That said, if you must, I can't answer your original question, but this should serve your purpose:

Thank you for the advice regarding the software, but its kinda not what I am after.

I wanna be able to right-click the program at the taskbar and terminate it from there. I don't want the need to alt-tab (or whatever) to bring a clone of taskmanager and then manually kill the process. Unless there's some hidden feature which i didn't see in that program, that enabled you to kill a process by right-clicking its icon.

I manage to make so that i can kill a process with right-clicking on its shortcut, but that only works on icons not placed on the taskbar.
