stop process

5 posts in this topic

what would the code be to stop a process for example explorer.exe and sidebar.exe?

Reason

i recently found a script by DaProgrammer that makes the active window transparent but when you run it on vista the start button gets the word start over it and the sidebar gets a big black bar in it.(Posted Code)

so i want to end explorer.exe and sidebar.exe

then after they are ended run explorer.exe and sidebar.exe

Hi,

ProcessClose() will close the process :), if you want to pause the process, you can use this UDF (i found it here on forum and change it a litle):

_ProcessPauseSwitch("ProcName.exe", True)
Sleep(1500)
_ProcessPauseSwitch("ProcName.exe", False)


Func _ProcessPauseSwitch($iPIDOrName, $iSuspend = True)
    If IsString($iPIDOrName) Then $iPIDOrName = ProcessExists($iPIDOrName)
    If Not $iPIDOrName Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local $ai_Handle = DllCall("kernel32.dll", 'int', 'OpenProcess', 'int', 0x1f0fff, 'int', False, 'int', $iPIDOrName)
    If $iSuspend Then
        Local $i_sucess = DllCall("ntdll.dll", "int", "NtSuspendProcess", "int", $ai_Handle[0])
    Else
        Local $i_sucess = DllCall("ntdll.dll", "int", "NtResumeProcess", "int", $ai_Handle[0])
    EndIf
    DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'ptr', 'CloseHandle', 'ptr', $ai_Handle)
    If IsArray($i_sucess) Then Return 1
    Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
EndFunc
