Avoiding writing to the hard disk...
Posted on 2004-10-31
Here is the problem: I noticed a nasty behaviour from some sites on the net. Many of them download (without user permission) some programs (most of them spyware, adware, even viruses etc.). and immediatly create subdirectories on the Program Files, windows/system group or other parts of the hard disk. Then they run their programs and install monitors that are not easy to get rid of. These sort of programs even write in the registry (they want to be alive as soon the user reboot or restart the system).
I wonder if there is a way to find out (thru delphi), when some program want to write some info to the hard disk or the registry qand to avoid or cancel it before it occurs? Any ideas?
