TaskManager.xls is a simple taskmanager implemented in Excel/VBA. It can list the running processes; and terminate, suspend or resume selected processes.
I wrote this script because I was in a restricted environment where I could not use Task Manager or Process Explorer. It will also come in handy when fixing an infected machine, where the malware prevents one from launching Task Manager or Process Explorer.
Push button “List processes” to list all processes:
Here’s how you would use it to disable malware. List processes, identify malicious processes, type command s (suspend) in column Command for the malicious processes you want to disable. Push button “Execute commands”, this will suspend the selected processes.
Now terminate them with the t command:
Doing this in 2 steps (suspend and terminate) in stead of just terminating, is more suited for multi-process malware that monitors itself.
