is it possible in C++ (Or C, ill learn a bit of either to do this) to close two running applications, Display its progres as text (e.g. Closing Abyss now..... Closed.... etc) and then close itself, and if so, where could i learn this how to do this. The mannor of its use is yes, questionable by some. Its purpose is to close:

A. abyssws.exe (Abyss webserver www.aprelium.com)
B. mysqld-ny.exe (MYSQL console, www.mysql.com)
C. Maybe some other apps like Webmatrix or winsyntax, This will be an addon to my server console :-).

If anyone can help me find out where to do all that without learning the C++ dictioanry, i will be greatful, thanks, dmk. :D
