GUI Users isn't the group to ask.  Perl-Users or Perl-Admin from Activestate.
But, to answer your question, use WMI.  Check out Dave Roth's books.

Subject: [perl-win32-gui-users] Killing process

Does anyone know of a way (using Perl and not some other 3rd party app), to kill off a running process, given only the name of the process and not the PID.
