Prevent process creation

6 posts in this topic

I want to completely deny process creation. Not ProcessWait and ProcessClose, but completely deny process creation even before it happens. Is there any way to make it possible? I don't care what would be involved - be it Windows registry or else. Antiviruses intercept processes somehow, so it has to be possible.

What process are you looking to exclude? There may be a different path depending on whether it is System or User, and what the process is.

I'm not saying this is your intention, but do we really want to discuss this type of thing here? This has SO many malicious uses that I'd think it would be something best left for other locations than here.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.  -  ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.  -  Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.  -  _FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file  -  SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editor  -  GUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.  -   Latin Square password generator

Hi,

Blocking a process from starting - and reversing the block - can be done by simple registry manipulation.  Any halfway decent HIPS should warn you that an app is trying to alter the registry, so the user should be able to prevent any unwanted "blocking".  As long as any proposed solution stays at this level, I am happy for the thread to continue. :)

You are right, this isn't my intention. All I do, I do for myself. And I suppose we don't have a choice but to discuss such things here. Otherwise how would we learn? Yes, some things can be used for malicious purposes, but so are most things. We can't just restrict any type of knowledge because it can be used for malicious purposes. Anything can be.

Thanks everyone for suggestions, I'll do what I need through the registry.
