The TerminateProcess function terminates the specified process and all of its threads.
// handle to the process
// exit code for the process
Windows NT: The handle must have PROCESS_TERMINATE access. For more
information, see Process Objects.
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.
If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
The TerminateProcess function is used to unconditionally cause a process to exit. Use it only in extreme circumstances. The state of global data maintained by dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) may be compromised if TerminateProcess is used rather than ExitProcess.
TerminateProcess causes all threads within a process to terminate, and causes a process to exit, but DLLs attached to the process are not notified that the process is terminating.
Terminating a process causes the following:
Terminating a process does not cause child processes to be terminated.
Terminating a process does not necessarily remove the process object from the system. A process object is deleted when the last handle to the process is closed.
