I have a windows based system that was affected with a malware. the problem is that the malware has attached itself o a system process and Im unable to stop the process without restarting my system. Is there a way that I can kill the process without tampering with the system process? How can this be achieved?

Happy to support you!

Killing the process in process explorer may include killing windows explorer, etc. if the malware has already attached to it.

Another process appears soon means there is another process running to restart the malware. So, use DTask manager, select the malware file and kill it.

Finally, delete the start up configurations of the malware using auto runs.

Also, you can even use the pslill.exe (which is a part of the Ps Tools suite), from a second machine to kill the process of the infected machine.
