How to kill IMMEDIATELY (!) a certain prgm but not from TaskManager?

Assume I want to kill a certain process resp. program IMMEDIATELY.

I could do it in built-in TaskManager by right clicking there and select "End process" from context menu.
But this need too much clicks and concentration.

What I would prefer is a cmdline command which can be put into a batch file on the desktop and which in turn can be double clicked on demand.

something like:

kill "firefox.exe"

Is there such a tool/cmd available?

Kill Processes From The Command Prompt In Windows 7

So something like: taskkill /f /im "firefox.exe"
Try without /f first. /f means "force".
Is that what you want?

You could do what Kaktussoft suggested with a batch file and a shortcut.
