  1. Download the zip file and unzip to temporary folder
  2. Move the contents of Portable to a folder of your choice
  3. Launch ProcessCloser.exe
  4. Program is inside system tray
Portable: Yes, saves settings to Settings.cfi (a simple text file) [as smaragdus indicated]

Note that this program's default hot key is CTRL+SHIFT+C, which will interfere with many different clipboard managers here on the site. This can easily be changed.

Edit: in testing, it works pretty well and helps close down multiple programs quickly and easily.
