DestroyWindow and API calls
Posted on 2000-03-10
I am trying to create a small program that blocks the windows NT messages
that people can send(the net send command is used as a bombing tool at our
school as well). As a first step i intend to block all messages but further
implement the ability to block individual computers.
Here's the present catch... When a 'Messenger Service' window pops up it
isn't a process. hence, i can't use the TerminateProcess command...i have
used the closewindow call, but this only minimizes the window, not closes
it all together. I have tried the 'destroywindow' command but it doesn't
appear to work. I tried 'destroywindow' on a normal window as well that
does have a PID yet it still didn't work.
So, what command do i call to close a window completely that doesn't have a
Also, if possible, what command do i call to search inside this window for
a ceratin piece of text (ie. a computer name) so i can block the message?
