Why do you want to do that?

i dont know why someone would want to do that i guess so the person couldnt close the program.

On Windows 95, 98, ME you can hide programs from ctrl + alt + del but XP, 2000 and I think NT have the process window witch shows everything. If you need to hide a program your best bet might be to rename it so it looks like something that should be there. Even on the 95,98,ME you can just download a process view.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

It should be clear to everyone that he just wants to make some maleware but can't keep it hidden well. Another thing you must remember is when you make things like trojans in VB you'll need a bunch of .ocx .mod .dll for the program. You could just shove all those files into a .zip then pray that it runs or make a dropper.
Hummm..... as for keeping it hidden... you could always make your program shutdown when some keys are pressed such as ctrl+alt+del & ctrl+shift+esc you can also make your VB proggie end processes such as taskmgr.exe

it loks to me like you have gone to planet source code, got some disable code, ripped it (albeit badly) and then wondered why it wont work.
there is at least one more line of code which i have seen in such modules, yours is incomplete.
www.planetsourcecode.com is your friend, there are countless programs which do this on there.
furthermore, as the others said, why the heck would you want to do this anyway? some lame virus program? a keylogger? just be aware that visual basic virii suck. not just 'suck', but *suck*, eg;
Error: cannot find file... etc.
visual basic is notorious for these errors.
