Run

$ ps aux

And find what the process is, then add to your startup script

killall -9 <process name>

I.E.

if you wanted to kill your sshdaemon on startup (although there are far easier and cleaner ways of doing this), just add:

killall -9 sshd

I use

ps -ef

which list a detailed process list.

Then I use

kill -9 <ps number>

which forces kill that process. [I'm not familiar
with "killall", but it sounds like it may be better.]

One thing, process numbers change. You might have to
do fancy trick to find the process number using

ps -ef | grep <magic word>

and then use that number as a wildcard entry to

kill[all] -9 $1

I think .bashrc in your $HOME directory get automaticlly run,
but am NOT sure (Someone else correct me if wrong).
