    The only reason I can think of to do this on a per-program basis is to defeat time-limited software.

    Otherwise, what's wrong with just setting the clock?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    You could use send a SW_HIDE message, or find the clock process and end it. that might work
