    Hopefully you're not trying to write some sort of malware. Are you?

    No

    No, i'm not wrinting a malware...

    I'm just writing a RAT (Remote Administration Tool), that can be used by a trojan, but is not my intention.

    Besides, how can i Kill a Windows Process?

    Thanks

    TerminateProcess.
    Not recommended, however, since the process will not be allowed to complete a shutdown.
    Instead, you should find its main window and close it. It's the preferred way. If possible.

    You could try searching. I don't do Windows programming, but I think I may have found what you're looking for: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...ll(VS.80).aspx

    That's dotNet, C#, C++/CLI, VB dotNet and not C. And certainly not standard C++ either.
