RE: KILL AN APP
I found it pays to experiment, and do a google seach every once in a while. They were merely commenting on your seeming lack of knowledge to do with scripting.

The script posted there can shut down an app if you know the processes hWnd.

Not meaning to get at you, but use your eyes for once. All the information is out there, find it.

The example shown is not tested, but gives you an idea of what would be involved.

Also, the given VB example in that link posted by Matty (which I gave to him among other links) is a nice example but the code contains a few useless things and also lacks the part where you actually try to close the application in a not forcefull way as you should always do that first.

No, as that should be common programming knowledge. The Scripting Documentation is meant to give info on the Messenger Plus! objects and stuff, it isn't a general "how do I program" tutorial. A Window handle (hWnd) is unique for each window, an application can have many windows, or even no windows at all. And these window handles are not fixed numbers, they are assigned and removed on the fly and thus change each time.

To know the window handle for a given process name you need a bunch of other code. Note that different processes can have the same name, so you should loop them all. And also, note that a single process/application can contain many windows, and you will never know what window is the main window. So in fact you even need to get all window handles for a given module and process them all (in order to let the application close properly first, before forcing the process to close).

oh:( ,     then i think i can't do this..   i thought that the hWnd was always the same for an app,   for example,  my script opens the windows media player,  or performs a scan with norton antivirus,     so i thought that if i found out what's their hWnd,   i could always kill those apps...     
but now, as you say,  the hWnd is different every-time they run,  then is far more complicated than i thought
