Windows 7: Automatically killing "Not responding" programs?

07 Mar 2013   #1

Windows Seven Ultimate sixty four bit.
Automatically killing "Not responding" programs?

Here's what it looks like:-

Plex seems to hang if you try to open up the same file again during the time it's loading (E.G. You load the file, while it's loading you load it again). I already have it set up so once plex closes it automatically springs back up, my question is:-

How would I go about killing "Plex.exe" if it's "Not responding" for greater than a minute? I don't want to kill it right away just in case it does come back. I'm pretty sure I could probably whip up a program for it, but, at this point in time I don't know how to detect if a program is not responding and why try to reinvent it if it already exists.

Does anyone know how to do this?
I need a program that will only kill "Plex.exe" if it's been in the "Not responding" state for greater or equal than 60 seconds.

taskkill /f /im "plex.exe" /fi "STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING"
There's how to kill not responding programs, now I just need to know how to verify that it's been "Not responding" for >= 60 seconds.
