    Just installed Half Life 2 and it got into a knot when I accidently switched back to Windows while running the game. When I tried to kill HL, using Task Manager, PG3 blocked the 'kill' reporting that I was trying to kill ZAClient.exe. Is this a problem with the Task Manager not listing the task correctly (though 'Go to Process' correctly identified the process as HL2.exe) o_O

    TIA

    Hi Tony, Yes it appears to be associated with when you do "End Task" on an item in TM's application list. If you use end process from the process list it should be reported correctly. BTW this does not happen every time with end task but it is a nit and DCS are aware of the problem and It is only minor.
    To kill an application on the protection list you need to give TM the terminate allow.
