Use this command to list all processes that are currently running:
The above command should list the currently running processes and some additional information. For the process that you want to kill, look at the PID column (should be the first column) and note down the number for that process.
Then kill the process by typing:
where xxx is the number that you noted above. If that doesn't work, you can get tough by typing:
kill -9 xxx
Rinse and repeat until all the processes that you need to terminate are killed. Note that you cannot kill processes that you don't own (unless you have a root account). Hope this helps
