What is it?
The free TerminateAll application will allow you to quickly terminate all other users sessions on your Mac. You might want to use this application to recover all CPU cycles consumed by other users open browser that happen to run some flash application.
This always happen to me. My kid’s will use the Mac to play some flash game and they will leave the browser open with the game running. When I return to my account and try to do something suddenly I find the system to be slow to respond…
TerminateAll will make quick work of closing all open applications in other users account. Note that it does not do so gracefully. It rather does it forcefully by killing all running user’s processes. Any unsaved work done in those other users account might be lost… so use it with consideration.
Download the latest version: TerminateAll v1.1
- OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.0+ (might work with 10.5… but untested)
- Changed how the process are killed. Was leaving some behind.
- Initial release
