Microsoft DirectX 9.0

Kill Help Utility

Kill Help is a utility for developers who are working on Microsoft?Windows?98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me). When a Microsoft DirectX?application crashes, the Ddhelp.exe process sometimes remains active. When this happens, it prevents other Microsoft DirectDraw?or Microsoft Direct3D?applications from working until Ddhelp.exe is terminated or the computer is rebooted. This utility will terminate the ddhelp process and spare developers from having to reboot their computer.
