Default Kill all winword.exe process before opening Word

How do I check if Word is running still running as a process?
My application uses Word but I would like to close all instances of Word before starting it up.

Then when my application terminates, I want to check if any instances of Word still exists, then kill them all.

Thanks for your help!
