By minimizing the difference between the left- and the right-hand sides of the many-body time-dependent Schrödinger equation with the Slater-determinant wave function, we derive a nonadiabatic and self-interaction-free time-dependent single-particle effective potential, which is the generalization to the time-dependent case of the so-called localized Hartree-Fock potential. The new potential can be efficiently used within the framework of the time-dependent density-functional theory as we demonstrate by the evaluation of the wave vector and frequency-dependent exchange kernel fxh(q,ω) of the homogeneous electron gas. This is found to be nonsingular and causal, and it satisfies the positiveness of the dissipation, in contrast to the earlier known kernel from the first-order perturbation theory, which makes our fxh promising for applications.
