    How come it's still possible for programs to hide their processes?

    Download the free game Maple Story (www.mapleglobal.com) and check out it's
    GameGuard "Hack Prevention System" for an example

  2. Because some programs are built this way.

    I tend to disagree there, programs can hide their processes but only because
    the OS is built to allow them to hide from Task Manager.

    I wouldn't like to hazard whether that's a good or a bad thing, from a
    security point of view probably bad but it might well have some legitimate
    uses.

    Plenty of 3rd party utilities that can show hidden processes though.

    Am I the only one who feels that the number of Zack's irrelevant comments
    has long gone beyond just toeing the borderline of spam? :)

    I don't know if you are the only one, I can only say I do not agree. I
    find Zack to refreshingly open and honest in all responses about the
    good as well as the bad of Vista. Zack, thanks for your continuing
    objectivity of your posts and thanks for the answer to my question.
    Adahn, I feel the same about your posts here, they are very objective.
    Thank you also.

  12. You are certainly part of a small minority, but probably not the only one.
