    Hello,

    Regarding Pilli's Tips & FAQ's he advises to not allow (only ocasional) termination rights for task mgr.

    What I don't understand is if PG is protecting Task Mgr. from being terminated or modified, why the tip?

    Thanks

    The reason is quite simple if, Task Manager was to be is used for any reason I would like to be in control of it - Probably me being over cautious, an extreme example is if and it's a big if, Task Manager was corrupted by malware then I do not want to give it the opportunity to close any of my protected program. :)
    I use ProcessExplorer as a TM replacement with Secure Message Handling enabled.
