    I am using PG free and I have authorized my security appliances to terminate any process and also Task Manager. I want to know is there any windows process that should be given Termiantion authorization in PG settinsg so that OS will work smoothly.

    Thanks.

    I believe that there are 3 processes that get termination authorisation by default. These are csrss.exe, smss.exe and winlogon.exe.

    Hi Aigle.

    You may also want to add drwtsn32.exe.

    If one of your progs has a problem,drwtsn usually gives you a choice to debug or terminate. I think services.exe is used aswell,but i'm not sure on that one.

    I find drwatson quite useful. I have it save a crash dump file that I can then load into Windows debugger. I also allow it to send a report to Microsoft.

    If you want to use drwatson, you need to give dwwin.exe termination rights as well as drwtsn32.exe. The former is part of drwatson. Services.exe also needs termination rights.
