.bat file to shut down a process

Specs: Windows XP
hi. I'm wondering how to shut down a process just by clicking a .bat file.
I wanna do this because my pc freezes at startup, and I gotta shut down explorer.exe and then manually start it up again, and all this I wanna be able to do via a .bat file.

help would be greatly appreciated

Hm, I replied already but the topic was moved, so my reply didn't make it!

Anyway, I'll try to say the same thing again, although its never perfect the second time around :(

Instead of making a BAT file to kill Explorer, you are best to fix the Explorer fault itself

You may have Malware installed, so you could:
Run a full updated scan with your installed Antivirus
And run a Free updated Quick scan with Malwarebytes

Someone else may reply with the "Programming" support, even though its not required.

I would agree that you may need to have the Explorer issue being fixed, particularly if outside of Explorer, issues arise as well.

Anyway, download kill.exe, or something similar, then run your script:

@echo off

kill.exe explorer.exe

Note that your whole system may freeze, since explorer.exe is pretty hardcore MS
