This is a small tool that I created to allow me to quickly and easily do three things:
  • disable and stop services I don't want running on my computer
  • kill a list of processes that I don't want running on my computer
  • recycle a set of files, within a list of directories, on my computer
It takes the manual effort out of starting TaskManager, remembering what tasks I want to kill, and manually finding them and ending them.

Likewise with the housekeeping of Services and Files.

REQUIREMENTS:
  • AutoIt3 3.2 or higher
  • the Services.au3 UDF by engine
DOWNLOAD:

Services.au3 (sorry - unable to attach because I've exceeded my upload quota)


Latest Version - v0.4 (14/02/12)

Satisfies my needs at the moment. Would like to hear your suggestions though. You may have thought of something that could make my life even easier.

One thing that springs immeditaly to mind is an editor for the INI file.
EG add all the running processes to a list view and allow a user to add them to the list of processes to be terminated.

I used to use an old program called "end it all" was fantastic for sliming the computer down when I wanted to play games with out all the clutter getting in the way.

Good Start (or end if this is all you need :-))

seangriffin,

This is nothing to do with this thread and I will delete it when you have responded.

I sent you a PM and posted in your Tesseract thread about a memory leak which been indentifed and solved. Have you seen either?

Hi Melba23,

I have been seeing many personal messages over the past 12 to 18 months, including yours, but in all honesty I've been so busy with other commitments that I've had no chance to respond. My apologies. Feel a bit sad to be away from the AutoIT community for so long. I've had such a good time supporting everyone in the past.

I made a brave decision to go into commercial iPhone development last year and since then I've struggled with any free time (including time for friends and family) and dropped out of the AutoIT forums almost entirely. But I'm planning to return soon. The iPhone venture was a bit of a flop to be honest, and I'm considering giving it up. I realise it's much more fun, and much less demanding and stressful, working on a hobby such as AutoIT. Plus AutoIT development helps me in my career.

Again I'm sorry. I know alot has been discussed over the Tesseract UDF and I'd love to get back into it. So there's been a memory leak and it's been fixed? I also heard someone continued development of it in another topic? I must get back to it sometime. I've created a rod for my own back by developing so many UDFs. Now I don't have the time to maintain them all - LOL :-)

Feel free to leave this post here ;-) It's a reminder for me to do something ;-) I'll try and find time to revisit the Tesseract UDF. I think it needs lots of work.

Thanks,

Sean. Edited by seangriffin
