  • You may be able to do this with the pskill tool that is part of the SysInternals suite of tools.

Are you trying to kill "setup.tmp *32" which looks like a 32 bit process on an x64 machine.  If that is the case you just do:


Taskkill /f /im setup.tmp

You do not need the *32

A file with a .tmp extension does not look like a running process to me. Is it more likely to be a temporary file created by a running process.
Open task manager and use it to kill candidate 32 bit processes on your test machine until you find the executable that creates this file.
