KillByArgs kills a process that contains specific command-line arguments.


	PROCESSNAME	- name (or part of a name) of target process
	ARG(s)		- string to look for in the process' arguments
	/ALL		- kill all matches, or else just first match found

	RETURNS number of processes matched
	(processes may not be killed depending on permissions)

	eg: Kills only notepad that has foobar.txt open:
	    > KillByArgs   notepad foobar.txt

	eg: Kills all instances of explorer that were run as embedded:
	    > KillByArgs   explorer -embedding /all

NOTE: Be as specific as possible to avoid killing unintended processes!
