    Hi,

    I have added a simple clock program (Dimension4) to the portected list, and have un-checked all boxes in the "Blocked Flags". Also, I do not have the Task Manager in the protected list. So technically I should not be able to kill the Dimension4 processs, yet Task Manager can kill it without any problems!!!

    Why is that?

    If you want to protect Dimension4 against termination (and other accesses on it), you should check the boxes under Blocked Flags. Also enable "1. Block EndTask..." under the Protection/General Protection Options file menu.

    Thanks Nick, for some reason I was thinking the opposite by un-checking the boxes (it's been a long day!).
    Thanks for clearing that up :cool:

    No problem. It takes some work, but it's worth it once you figure out PG and what you can do with it.
