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

    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.
