    You mean: block services and applications on startUp right?
    To stop applications from being started you should check the registry and remove them from there (Run,RunOnce,RunOnceEx etc)
    Maybe place the keys in a different place of the registry (or a file) and restore them if the user wants to.

    k, looking at both as soon as i get home, omw out the door... and yea it would be for legal good purpose :P
    just not in the mood of keep paying for tools/av etc to stop this nightmare of exploits comming around, simply gonna block everything until i aproved it to run :P

    if its ok i ask here :P also recall its possible to hook the registry before a program can alter registry right?

    i recall some windows optimization tool i had once actualy monitored/blocked until accepted when i tried to install things..

    anyways back tonight.
