1) Windows Live SkyDrive : Windows Live SkyDrive which debuted as Windows Live Folders also offers a pretty good amount of 25GB storage space. It’s more reliable and secured. You have to sign up using your Windows Live Id or Hotmail Id. the best part of it is you can access files from your mobile device as well as you can compress and download all your files as a compressed archive. The files can also be specified as public or private with links for sharing as well.

2) Google : Google’s various services like mail docs and Picasa together contribute to have a storage space of about 10 GB which is constantly increasing. By installing a simple extension we can use 7.5 GB Google’s email space as Hard Disk in our PC. Just install it and follow the instructions given and will show up as a separate hard disk in My Computer. very easy to use

3) Adrive : Adrive is another online file storage service with a whopping 50 GB of free storage and can extended to 10 TB with payment.

4) Dropbox : Dropbox can be used as client side software on our PC which offers 2 GB of online storage. Just install the software and drag and drop files to upload. The software will automatically upload all of your files when the computer is idle. The transmission of file data occurs over an encrypted channel (SSL) and all files are encrypted which is an added bonus. It even works with all major mobile platforms. good one

5) Amazon cloud Drive : If you just want a virtual drive for uploading videos, music docs or photos, you can use the Amazon Cloud drive. Your files can be neatly classified into categories in pre-existing folder structures and the service offers 5 GB of free space. However, files above 2 GB in size cannot be uploaded.

6) Others : Although I have listed only the major services here there are plenty of others too like Mozy, 4shared, Esnips, SafeSync, etc.

Task Manager is generally used to kill or end a process in Windows . This method is effective but not nearly as fun as killing a process in Command Prompt. And one more advantage of killing process using Command Prompt provides much more control and the ability to end multiple processes at once.

All of this is possible with the TaskKill command. You can kill a process by the process ID (PID) or by image name (EXE filename).

Open up an Administrative level Command Prompt and run tasklist to see all of the running processes:


Image Name PID Session Name Mem Usage
========================= ======== ================ ============
firefox.exe 26356 Console 139,352 K
regedit.exe 24244 Console 9,768 K
notepad.exe 24696 Console 22,028 K
notepad.exe 25304 Console 5,852 K
explorer.exe 2864 Console 72,232 K

cmd.exe 18664 Console 2,380 K
conhost.exe 2528 Console 7,852 K

In the example above you can see the image name and the PID for each process. If you want to kill the firefox process run:

C:\>Taskkill /IM firefox.exe /F


C:\>Taskkill /PID 26356 /F

The /f flag is kills the process forcefully.
