Invisible tasks?

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Death to Smoochy, Jan 12, 2006.

  1. Under XP, how do you prevent a memory resident task from appearing in the
    system task list that you get by hitting <Ctrl><Alt><Del>?

    Replacing taskmanager with an executable of your own, and hiding your
    processes is one way. There are others of course.

    brought two very relevant links:

    google is your friend.

    if windows thought a service was a device driver it wouldn't show up in
    task manager. You'd still be able to list it but you'd have to write
    the app yourself. There are a number of apps that showed up in a google
    search that will do that.

    There's a simpler way than your VB link shows, and if you're writing
    the program/script yourself, all you do is include the line

    hide.me

    Other languages have thier own ways of doing it Smoochy, easiest way to
    find it is just searching through a command database with the function
    titles and looking for anythink with hide or cloak or invisible
