Why was the terminator removed? I really liked this feature and it allowed me to kill nearly all processes and now it is gone. Why?

I'm porting the code into an optional plugin for users who might still need the functionality.NewVersionTester wrote:I really liked this feature and it allowed me to kill nearly all processes and now it is gone.
There was a pretty ListView which had a quite detailed explanation of those methods and their 'dangerousity'. If i remember it right, there was even a confirmation warning MessageBox which popped up if those kernel-methods were selected. And that was pretty much suitable! User had enough warnings.keremg wrote:...If i remember right, there where some unsafe (kernel) methods that could destabilize/crash the os and that isnt worth terminating a process.
Please excuse me, but are you serious? Then let's not use any termination functionality at all - we'll just restart our system every time something hangs.)) Speaking seriously, sometimes it is unacceptable to reboot the system immediately and the chance to leave it running is worth trying. Not everyone's machine has a browser and a media player as the only running software.keremg wrote:... Just close all apps and save your data, then do a clean restart of your system.
Same here! I guess I know not to update on any other pcs.alienmuppet wrote:I started process hacker today specifically to terminate a program that I know occasionally has a problem, and I can only shut it down using process hacker's terminator. I let process hacker update itself, and terminator was gone! I was infuriated because I really needed to kill the process and re-open so I could continue, without the annoyance of restarting. Its a bit annoying that it is now gone, it's the main reason I used process hacker :-(
