Windows kill process

on windows use taskkill /F /IM processname.exe

/F is force, assuming /IM means all matches, but can't look it up at the
moment.

on mac or linux it seems that killall KeyTrapper should work, though you
might do a ps -ef at the command line and confirm caps and such to make
sure your match text is right. (not sure if its case sensitive or not,
seems like it should be)

You can also check the returned data, if its a 2 it means there was a
command error (on mac, probably on linux) if its a 1 it means no matches
were found OR not all were killed. Otherwise 0 is returned.
