Project Description


We have 2 small applications that run inside our network and at some of our clients.

The first application it is called MASTER and runs at system startup. This application performs quickly a few actions and after that it starts the second application called MAIN.

This main application is a dll and [url removed, login to view] is used for running it. This process in some cases is critical for our and our clients businesses.

We want it to be started in a way that the users will not be able to kill it from the task manager. Somehow the way that the anti-virus software works.

We would appreciate if this can work on all Windows versions XP and newer (also Windows server OS if is possible), on both 32 and 64 bits.

The MAIN application is started by using CreateProcess and we think that is something that it has to do with the LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES.

We will require the C++ code that will perform this kind of action (prevent our application from being killed from task manager) in Visual Studio 2008.

We prefer working with a coder / team that has done this before and are able to provide us a working sample before bidding or before the bid is accepted.

Thank you.
