Hi.

Is there a way to prevent a user ending a program by clicking end-process in the windows taskmgr (i have already provided protection against end-task, but this is useless without protection against end-process)

i have seen certain applications do this, for example,

>> if u try to end-process on services.exe, it says that it is a critical process and cannot be ended.
>> when i was trying to remove some spyware from my machiene, i tried to end-process on it and it said access denied.

btw, i will be using this information only for legit purposes. my application cannot be terminated because it contains windows hooks - if i do not unhook before closing, it will slow up the OS and i cannot afford this to happen.

Thanks in advance
