thanks for the reply, that was quite descriptive.
As far as killing the application is concerned, well , i have seen some apps that have the application running using a Service and if you try to kill that service in Task Manager, they pops back up, so i was thinking of joining my app with some Windows Service. Is it possible?
Yes, that's possible, but: from the command line (or run prompt)
SC STOP <servicename> Service terminated.
SC DELETE <servicename> Service gone.
The same can be done from any app that handles services -- including Hijack This EDIT: Autoruns, Runscanner, OTL, OTS, etc.
There is absolutely no (supported
) way to mandate that a process always runs on the windows platform. None. Malware authors have been looking for years, and they still haven't found one, short of hacking the kernel itself apart -- which you can only do from C.
2ndly i should have written OPEN FOLDER instead of Double Click on folders, as one can open folders in windows in some other ways also, like from Run command.
Then it's absolutely not possible.
Basically i wanna make an app that can make my folder secure, as my laptop is normally in office and other staff also uses it sometimes, so i want my documents to be secure. I know i can use third party apps or may be TrueCrypt as you mentioned, but i ll go for them if i cant find any way of developing my own app.
Use truecrypt. Nothing stopping a co-worker from terminating your app and taking a looksee. No way around a truecrypted volume, though.
Hope that helps,
