    Hi.

    I have a little question about how get PG working with Taskmgr.

    What I'd like to do is to get a warning when I (or someone else) try to end a process.
    Today if I open Taskmgr and end whatever process I got no PG warning to stop it.

    Thanks

    Is the program that you terminated in the Protected Program list?

    What "Allowed Flags" have you set for Taskmgr? Is the "Terminate" allowed?

    Do you have Block End Task enabled in the Protection/General Protection Options menu? If you enable it and do not allow Task Manager terminate priviledges, then task manager will not be able to terminate processes. You won't get a warning, but you will get an "Unable to Terminate Process" message and a PG log entry.

    Yes I do.

    As my snapshot shows I did not allow this privilege. I will and check the difference.

    It is because you do not have "close message handling" set on the programmes you try to terminate. TM uses such a message. ;)
