Preventing script termination by user

Recommended Posts

lokalhero

Hi all, another noobish question here...

I've written a silly little script which acts like a fake virus to annoy/troll one of my workmates.

It's very simple. It displays a message box with the words "Virus alert! - Click cancel to remove", of course there is no cancel button, and the script is set to loop 10,000 times, every time the OK button or close button is clicked.

What I need now though is to write-protect the script and prevent the user from ending the process via task manager, because as it is, he can just stop the script running.

How do I go about fixing this?

Also, is there a way of hiding the autoit icon in the system tray? It seems a little too obvious at the moment.

Any help will be much appreciated

Thanks in advance.

1. No.

2. Read the rules.

3. ????

4. Go directly to ban, do not pass GO, do not collect $200


My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

Do not discuss any of the following:

  • Keyloggers and other forms of malware.

That includes fake viruses too.

Strange... I can't see any wording there that includes fake/joke scripts. I haven't created any malware, just a joke script to annoy a work colleague.

lokalhero,

This comes under the "other forms of malware" prohibition. We all detest joke scripts like this - do you think the AV companies bother to check it is just "fun" before adding AutoIt to their blacklist? Answer - No. :bye:

Do not ever post anything like this again or sanctions will follow. :oops:
