ctrl alt del

ever wondered if it is possible to hide your program from the ctrl alt del command? It is:

[code]
Private Declare Function RegisterServiceProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwProcessID As Long, ByVal dwType As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetCurrentProcessId Lib "kernel32" () As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim pid As Long
pid = GetCurrentProcessId()
RegisterServiceProcess pid, 1
End Sub
[/code]

Thanx to the normal VB messageboard

    Ey that don't work!
  • Sorry "code37" you must have done something wrong.

    I've tried the code in my pc (windows 98 with VB6) and it worked perfectly.

    Check your program carefully again and I M sure u can detect if there is anything wrong.

    (I don't know whether this code works on win2000, XP etc. but in 98 it is working very fine)

    Windows XP uses a different way of showing active processes. It's still possible to prevent your application from being seen, however. In order to do so, you must have the device loaded as a device driver for a fictational device.
