 System SmartClose - a good replacement for EndItAll
Website - Freeware
I used to use EndItAll from PC Magazine to close all programs before doing critical installations or defragging. They decided to make it registerware and I started looking for a replacement program. This one does a pretty good job of ending just about all processes running on your PC except for the ones that it really needs. It will also allow you to restart everything you closed once you are done. I think SmartClose is a good replacement for EndItAll, and it does a few things EndItAll doesn't.

Quote from the website -  SmartClose is a free program that will automate the process of closing all running programs. It can also save the state of the system to a system snapshot, so all the programs that have been closed can be also easily restarted later by SmartClose.
