Hi, does anyone know of a utility or anything that will hide a program I am running? As in you can't see it in the taskbar but you can bring it up by pressing a hotkey. Or a utility that will not let a program be restored without a password? Thanks.

I think that a program called Trayer available at:
http://home.pacific.net.sg/~ngkf/trayer/default.htm
may be what you are looking for (or close to it) in that it will take programs out of the taskbar and put them in the system tray where they can be accessed.

Does Folder Guard just hide folders? Or can it hide a program that is running?

You gotta try it out! It's a great program!
I'm not an expert user of this program... but I'm sure you won't wanna miss this program...
I'm sure you can prevent a program from being restored without a password and limit a user's access by setting the permissions in this program.
Gd luck in your findings about this program!
Merry christmas n happy new year!

Tell me if you know of any greater programs than this one.... :)

I already have a program like that, that's not really what I'm looking for. Rlippert, I tried out Trayer and it seemed to work(with a few exceptions). Please answer the question so I can give you the points.
