Fyi, this is PRETTY darn old.

Depending on how DyKnow appears in the taskmanager dictates how it would be created for instance, on my computer it comes up as a random string of 8 lowercase letters. You could always create a random letter generator in python and have the output be put into a looping taskkill that puts .exe at the end; thus essentially stopping it.
But if it comes up as monitor.exe you just write an extremely basic program using DOS it would look like this:
taskkill /im monitor.exe
but as it is for most of us it comes up as a string of letters. so python should be used for this. I am working on writing the program, I just need to fix a few errors.

Also, you do realize how long it would take to come up with the right combination of letters, right? Assuming you ONLY have lower-case letters in your string, there are 26 different letters in possibly 8 different places. 26(letters)^8(different places) = 208,827,064,576. Assuming your cracker works at a rate of 1 key-word per second (you still have to wait for Windows to check for the process, and return to you), it would take you approximately 6,617 years to complete (give or take a couple thousand).
