Thread: Can't kill/killall this program
09-15-2006, 01:01 AM #1Can't kill/killall this program
I am using MacFreePops to retrieve my emails from my two yahoo accounts on Apple mail. The program has a quirky nature of hogging the CPU when I close the lid and open it again. The daemon "freepopsd" hogs the CPU and memory. Whenever it happens, I use the killall command to terminate it and restart it.
However, it has become resistant now. See this screenie:
I am unable to kill this program by kill or killall, even as a superuser (sudo). I don't want to restart or relogin everytime... is there a way to terminate this nasty little program?

Get the process ID, then pop to the command line in Terminal and do:
kill -9 <processid>
