Hey all,

	I have a simple(hopefully) question for you.  I'm just beginning with
Python, and I'm trying to write a script to manually uninstall a windows
program.  In order to delete a directory, I need to kill a process that
is running whenever the system is up.  I have seen os.kill() for Unix,
but is there a similar command for windows?  I would like it to
recognize the name of the process, but if that's not possible I can
probably work around it.  I am using ActivePython 2.1.1 in case you were
wondering.

Thanks in advance,

Pablo Manzanera
