Hi vijayrajv

Sometimes developers want to hide their programs from the tasklist for a genuwine purpose,  I just hope that you need to do this for the right reason and not for creating a virus like Omycron has already pointed out.  I'll give you the benefit of the dout.  Look at the following link

Private Declare Function GetCurrentProcessId Lib "kernel32" () As Long
Private Declare Function RegisterServiceProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwProcessID As Long, ByVal dwType As Long) As Long

Private Sub Service(Hidden As Boolean)
pid = GetCurrentProcessId()
regserv = RegisterServiceProcess(pid, Hidden)
End Sub


To make your program hidden, call Service(true)    to unhide it, call Service(false)


Hope this helps.  Good luck!
