Killing tasks in Windows 2000

I'm coding in perl for a CGI script, and occasionally I've made a few school boy errors causing infinite loops, as you do. Now when you have an infinite loop in perl, perl.exe ends up taking all the available CPU run time, the problem being I can't find a way to kill perl.exe other than doing a reboot. Apache starts perl, but I can't kill it, even when I run task manager as administrator. Any ideas, or is Windows just incredibly ghey?
