Under Win 98 Progkill did not show up under the Task
List. It does show up in W2K and my students have
found it and killing progkill. Will this change in the

Unfortunately, no. Windows 2000 doesn't have the
RegisterServiceProcess() function, which is what allows
progkill to hide under Windows 95/98/Me.
For Windows NT4, 2000, & XP, it is reccommended to cause
Program Killer to launch under a different user, as I
believe one user cannot kill a program run as a different
user. Another option is to outright disable the Tasklist
Hope this helps...

How can i launch PK under a different user(using NT4, 2000,
& XP) ?
Why do you use sleep program coded using C ?
As far as I know, to run a program as another under
NT4/WK/XP, you need to use the "runas" command. I've never
used it, so I'm not quite sure how it works exactly.
As for coding the "sleep" program in C, I had no other
language available at the time (Was using VB Only at the
time) that could goto sleep for X number of seconds to halt
the processing of the Batch Script. This was done to ensure
any previous commands called upon by the batch script had a
chance to finish before anything new was done. I coded it
in C using the DJGPP Library, because that was the only C
variant I could find for windows that had the sleep()
function. The MS VC++ 6 installed on the machine I was
using did not have this function.
