Your code kind of makes sense, but it lists things that are not processes (such as AutoIt's help file, which is a CHM file).

Not sure if this will be of help to you, but I just wrote this little ditty. It seems more like what you describe what you want to do.

#include <array.au3>
$list = ProcessList()
for $i = 1 to $list[0][0]


$ans = InputBox("Terminate a process", "Enter the line number of the process you want to kill.")

#include <ByteMe.au3>
