XP Home: Task Manager - End Process - Won't End certain Processes

For Task Manager,
When trying to End Process on certain things...

Most of the time it works great, and the process ends like it should.. but..
there are certain things that seem "immune" to End Process, and I can't
remember what to do next (if there is a next step, that doesn't involve
Rebooting or Logging Off)

Basically, to use an example.. it's not unheard of for there to be 2 to 3
instances of AcroRD32.exe without the program even being open, and with no
PDF's open (to include no PDF's open in web browsers).

There are other programs that are like that too, and the instances that show
as running, but not in the Application list for Task Manager...

Is there any way to end these "immune" processes, other than restarting the
computer or doing a Log Off? It's quite annoying when you need to completely
restart a process, and old "ghost" instances remain persistent.

Is this not the right place to post this? Or does nobody have an answer yet?
(Or has nobody read this?)

Um, I take it nobody is reading this question... and/or nobody has any clue
how to answer it? If that's the case, then where's a better place to ask
this question? I'd hate to think this group is dead, even though Microsoft
still hosts it and has it as a place people can ask questions..
