a tool to prevent a specific process from running
Hi all, i have written a program in C which prevents the user specified process from running.
This might come in handy if you don't want your kids to play a game or use the net.
It is called Exekiller.
it runs in the background from an unvisible window and is easy to use.
Usage: Exekiller.exe <processname>
Example: Exekiller.exe iexplore.exe --> this will prevent Internet Explorer from running.
if you wish to kill this program (to use the blocked process again) you can kill it by pressing <CTRL>+<SHIFT>+<BACKSPACE>.
i've released it under the GPL and it can be found at my site.
i hope it may be useful
