TaskKill Access Denied

TaskKill Access Denied

I have several processes that were spawned by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.  Per McAfee technical support, I have attempted to use TaskKill to kill the processes, but I get an error saying Access Denied.  

I am using a domain admin account which is in the local Administrators group on the server.  The processes are running under the system account.

any ideas how to kill these processes without a reboot?

RE: TaskKill Access Denied

did u try the Windows Resource kit kill.exe tool. I have had guys who support ePO have me kill services using this tool.  If it doesn't work.. short of a reboot you can't really do much more
