    I like the icon fo this utility 😉
    Looks like its trying to scare the notes application saying “i will kill you” 😀

    Yeah this app was used a lot in our “ex-office” as well.

    But I never understood the need for it :P..
    all you gotta do is kill all processes that lnotes.exe starts. 🙂

    yeah it has a couple of daemons that need to be killed too ..so not all the names are of the type *notes.exe 🙂

    i used to delete all the ones starting with ‘n’ except the most obv ones… never failed me 😛

    I have been working as a Lotus Notes Administrator for the last 10 years and have found this a pathetic annoyance all along. How come everybody else manages to close their software properly even in worst case crashes and IBM can’t?

    And worst of all: these issues NEVER get fixed. Over the years, I have turned more and more to OpenSource, because in that field, things get fixed, always!
    Only on proprietary software you can wait forever and it still does not mend. I am amazed and frustrated that companies don’t seem to care about what users want. And of course, due to the closed nature, no fork or fix can be submitted, even when a community member is more competent that the dim light inside the company that messed this up in the first place.

    Thank You. Thank you. Thank You.
    I have been restarting my !@#$% computer for years and finally had enough.
    You cannot just kill it through task manager, and I tried killing everything.
    Thank You.
    Did I already say that. Oh no, Thank You.
    Man I hate Notes.

    Or, even easier, you can manually end the process ntaskldr.exe from the tab Processes in Windows Task Manager, after Lotus has crashed.

    You are wellcome! 🙂

    Or you could always use the IBM tool to do it…

    Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes

    nsd -kill

    It works for me on 8.5.2.
