Best way to keep an application alive

  1. Say I want an application to ignore kill signals from everywhere except its own GUI - or maybe just ignore kill signals entirely until I reboot my system. What's the best way to do this, for any arbitrary application?

    Edit: if it helps, the case in point is keeping Process Monitor alive while a hostile program runs, so I can see what the badware is doing.

    On Windows? BTW, not all signals can be ignored.

  5. Yeah, on Windows. :) I thought stuff with a kernel driver could effectively ignore all signals if it wanted to, though?

    (majoMo and skudo12: thanks, I'll check those out.)

    You mentioned an app - not a kernel driver.
    But I don't know all the details how win kernel thingie works.
