Default pskill on windows xp home

hey, I'm running a legit windows xp home ed. I have full admin access password protected.. I can't kill processes from task manager, or tskill command from dos. PSkill.exe also won't close any. I can only close those under my account, but any system, etc I can't close. I keep getting 'Access is denied'. anyone had this problem before?

yes windows does. Before I reformatted I was able to kill many system files. I think there was only a handful that windows did not allow me to kill. I could even kill svchost.exe and lsass.exe and others. But now I can't shut down a single one.

Why do you want to shut down so many processes ? to save on resources ? if you shut down too many of the svchost.exe , this will only result in a popup window that will freeze your computer & restart it.
