First of all I think SS meant
cmd /c ntsd -c qd taskmgr
and breaking down,
CMD start command shell
/C Carries out My_Command and then terminates
ntsd invokes windows command line debugger
-c executes the following debugger command
qd quit and detach the application
another nice "feature"
Kill *any* process:
Get list of processes : tasklist /svc
Kill Process : ntsd -p <pid> -c "q"
Start Task Manager with Elevated Privileges (Kill System Processes, etc):
ntsd -hd -c "qd" taskmgr
-c "qd" tells debugger to execute 'qd' command at the first breakpoint.
-hd forces the target process to use regular heap (when the process is started under debugger the default is to use the NT debug heap. This is slower and takes up more memory)
note: qd has another function than "qd"
