    Stop opening process

    Hello everybody,

    I want to stop the opening file process to execute this file with my application.

    I explain my problem :

    I have a shared folder with different types of files (.doc, .xls. .txt, .exe...). All of these files should be run with my application, without opened with your associate application.

    I can't modify relation between apps and extensions of files because on other devices, the opening process should be normal.

    I think to hook ZwCreateFile, but the opening file process isn't stop.

    Have you ideas ?

    I would suggest that theres a solution to be found at application user-mode level, rather than writing a kernel driver.

    How about setting special permissions for the files you don't want to be accesible?
