Basically, you cant. (as far as im aware....)

The processes that you cant cancel fall in two types:

Windows operating system related (system idle process for example[1])
Ones that have "crashed" or are taking huge chunks of memory. These may come up with a "unable to terminate", but they will be terminatable given enough time/whatever.

The reason for this is so some snot nosed little kid doesnt write a virus that just puts itself into the startup menu, then lock up the computer as soon as it runs.

If you REALLY want to mess up your computer, there are easier ways. And if you want to mess someone elses computer up, you need a slap.

[1] Yeah. I know its not really a process.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,
it's not possible to hide your program from the windows task manager, but you can disable killing the process by writing a service application. There are several Howtos in the internet, or you can just go -> Delphi -> File -> New -> Service Application. If you've compiled your service you've to install it like following: project1.exe/install, to remore it : project1.exe /uninstall, if you've installed the service it can start every windows logn, if you want to.
