    Re: How to hide your program from the Task Manager

    Yes it did, and should work for any process name.
    Change the string "HiddenProcessName", to iexplorer, on this line:
    Code:
    Dim HiddenProcessName As String = "iexplorer"  'Set this name to match the proces name of your application.
    Be sure not to use the debugger, when testing this.
    Test it as a built executable file, in the release folder.

    I'm sorry the code doesn't work on Vista.
    I can't help you either, because I don't know of a way to do it without being malicious.

    Re: How to hide your program from the Task Manager

    in VB6 you used to be able to do a single API call which would make windows think your app was a screensaver and would therefore not show up in any task manager-style programs at all.

    Can you not still just do this with VB.NET?
