Hide a program from task manager RRS feed

  • Note that there is a pinned message at the top of the forum warning contributors against aiding the development of malicious code.

    Unless you provide a good justification for why you want to hide your program from Task Manager, we can only presume that your intentions are malicious.

    That said, I don't think that it can be done, at least not in a straightforward way -- you never know if there is some clever trick using the system internals.

  • i am not making a rat, why do you think that i just make a launcher that is opening a file from some folder and that folder there are an exe and i hide those file cuz i dont want some one will crack it so i hide those file and i want to hide the program too cuz if they want to get the path of the program they just can right click on the program and go to the path...

  • Among other ways, it can be done by DLL injection and API hooking.

    But i don't see why you want to hide your program from Task Manager...

    How do you "hide those file"? 

    How do you prevent a user with admin rights from seeing any file on the computer?

  • So someone interested in "cracking" your program will just "crack" the launcher to find it.

  • Don't do that.  It's my computer, not yours.  If I don't like your application, I want to be able to kill it.  At some point, your application will have bugs, and someone will need to get rid of it.
