How to remove App from Task Manager and Task bar

Recommended Posts

The answer allready have been given two times :

If it is a PC you control and being publicly available you would arrange for the process to run under an account that the general public cannot touch.

Sharpharp,

Your reply was :

Not possible, there is no generic account on the PC. Users login with their own Active Directory Account. I run my display timer script via the Group Policy Logon script, so the user gets it when they login.

In fact, there no need to be a generic account to restrict AD user access to computers on the domain. Just add "Domain\Users" do the user group on the computer, and the AD users won't have administrative access on the computer.

This is the better way to do it, and it is already implemented in Windows. In user mode, the process launched under admin rights cannot be killed in the taskmanager by a user.

Your answer to your issue is using Active directory to manage who does what to the PC in question. If it is a public PC, then simply having logon restrictions set via Active directory will solve your issue. You won't have to worry about task manager, what window is active, or anything. This solution is pretty strait forward to do. Just do a bit of googling to find out how to set up what you need.

AutoIt is a great tool, but not always the best solution to every issue. In this case AD is a much easier and simpler way to go.

If you don't want that those users to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, than you can disable the taskmanager.In this mode, they cannot stop the process.
