On Linux I use this small script, called 'zap'. Run it as root.
For other operating systems, e.g HP-UX, you will have to tweak the
and the options to ps (e.g. ps -ef).
Hope this helps:
#! /bin/sh
# kill processes using parameter
kill -9 `ps -ax|grep $1|cut -c1-5`

So, 'zap fred' kills off all of fred's stuff.

Don't do a 'zap me' !! or it will log you off.
