Windows kill task is a common problem with Windows 10. If you use a task manager to kill a task, Windows 10 may not actually kill the task. This can cause the task to continue to run in the background, using up resources.
How to kill a task in Windows
Microsoft Windows is a complex operating system that employs a task scheduler to run background tasks. When a user invokes a task, the task scheduler places the task in one of several “jobs” and schedules it for execution.
A job is basically a set of related tasks that are to be executed in sequence. A job can be in one of several states, such as Active or Inactive. An Active job is running, but an Inactive job is not running.
The task scheduler can be used to kill a job. When you kill a job, the task scheduler moves the job from the Active state to the Inactive state. The task scheduler then removes the job from the active job list. The task scheduler also removes any dependencies that the job has on other jobs.
Some tasks may require the user to take certain actions before they can be killed. For example, the Windows Update Task might require that the user reboot the computer. In these cases, the task scheduler will provide a notification to the user before it kills the task.
