You can check for the running tasks in the OnClosing event of the form and can protect the application from getting close. Also for further protection, i.e. force quit from task manager you can also hide it from the task manager. the code for which can be easily found by googling it

Don't EVER suggest hiding anything from Task Manager. There is never any legitimate reason to do so.

Only reason why i suggested hiding from task manager was because i thought that people should not be knowing about what application is running on their machine and the application is needed to be prepared for monitoring people's activity

because i thought that people should not be knowing about what application is running on their machine Oh really?? This is the dumbest reason i've heard yet. People are entitled to know about EVERY application that is running on their machine. Especially so in an age of 10's of thousands of viruses running around.

You should post this as a solution with some references...

In the Form.Closing event (assuming this is a Windows Forms app) of your application you can use the Process class to see if your other process is still running.

You would probably want to poll every few seconds to do this check as you don't want to cancel the app being closed, possibly stopping Windows from shutting down.
