The basic function of the program is a windows task manager, and security tool. It has the following features:
-View all processes & applications running on the computer (exact equivalent of Applications & Processes tab in task manager)
-Process Gaurd: Lets you blacklist certain processes from running on your computer
-Path Gaurd: Lets you blacklist certain paths on your computer which .exe files are not allowed to run from. This feature is usefull for virus removal, etc as most viruses will download new programs to Appdata\Local\Temp and then execute them. AltKill 2.0 will notify when a process attempts to start from such a location and ask for your approval. Path guard can store any number of paths to monitor.
-Kill selected window by hotkey: When you press a certain hotkey (ALT + User defined key), the program will terminate the process associated with the current window - usefull for dealing with viruses, processes which won't close, and processes which are not responding
-EXE Lock: This feature disables all executable files on the local machine - as in you/any other program will not be able to launch any executable files while the EXE Lock is enabled. This stops viruses from downloading & starting new versions of themselves when you try to remove them with an antivirus product. You must have all programs which you need open while EXE Lock is enabled, because you will not be able to launch new ones while it is enabled.
Here is a screenshot of one of the first Beta versions:
