Destroying a windows process

Hello,
I have a task of launching another application using a .bat file. I can start the application successfuly by using:
Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();
Process process = runtime.exec("cmd /c start my.bat");
but when it comes time to kill the application I execute:
process.destroy();
and the application is still running. Is there a way to kill a windows command window and it's running application?
v/r
