What are you trying to do? Block an exe?

Solution 1

If it's not an executable that your setup program installed, that's what I would call questionable practice, and even ill-advised.

But, you would have to create a thread to constantly enumerate the processes running on the machine, and when you detect the desired process, immediately close it down.

You can't block it from your code. Since you're code has no hooks into the Loader, you can't stop it from being executed.

Enumerating the process list is not really blocking the process since in order for it to show up in the list, it has to be running already.
