Modify process command line parameters after a process has started RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm just wondering if it's possible to remove a command line parameter of a running process.

    The reason behind this: My application can be started with parameters like /username:abc /password:xyz
    The Windows Task Manager and other software (like Process Explorer) can visualize running processes and their command line arguments. If the process is running on a machine with several users logged in simultaneously then other users could possibly see the password. Therefore if my process was started with a /password parameter I'd like to remove it so that it's not visible in Task Manager.

    Thanks for any ideas,
