Kill certain Process?
ok i was wondering how i could kill a certain process in windows just by pressing a "hot key", exactly what i want to use this for is to kill the process hl.exe, its half-life. sometimes my parents say i play CS too much and i have to do something else, but i want to keep playin. so i was wondering if there was a way so if i was playin and i heard them comming i could press like F12 real quick and it will killl hl.exe so they dont catch me playin it. =D just wondering if this was possible, thx for the help

Well if you use XP you can press the Windows key+L and itsa goes to your log in screen.
That comes in handy for me when Im playing...em...games...

If you're playing CS I'll help.... If not....
That was a joke..... Honestly though, look at it from the other point of view. Your parents care enough to know what you are doing and seem to believe that you are doing one thing too much. But note: They care.
They want you to do well and, frankly, playing HL when they are expecting you to be using that internet connection for learning isn't bad of them or a bad thing in general.
Don't get me wrong.... I love my CS and I'm 45 years old..... But there are other things.... You need to pay attention to them too.... When you have those other things "down" then it's HL time......
Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

Well there are way's of killing of processes but I'm not sure they'd be as quick as the simple windows key+l tip.
Good luck anyway.

You may want to try using http://www.bb4win.org/news.php with it you can have virtual desktops, i don't play cs but you may well be able to flip to another desktop with "work stuff" already open for show. It works with some games but it has not been something i have explored (try the bb4win forum?)

windows +m will minimize it... that would at least get it off the screen so unless your parents look at the task bar, they will not know. Just make sure you have something else in the background (like have a google search for something for a physics class or something) so that it looks like you are being productive when they walk in.

Try getting a hotkey program?
If your using windows xp, when you press control + alt + delete the task manager window should automaticly hide whatever is on your screen and go on top.
