I was wondering if there is a System() function I can call in order to return a list of system processes and manipulate the processes. I want to create a program that lets me effectively control another computer for the reason that I have another computer upstairs and hate walking up and down the stairs to get to and fro. Also, is there any security verification (I hope so) that I need to go through so windows is aware that I'm not trying to just hack the computer to bits? I searched around and mostly commercial remote task managers appear that I don't want to buy.
Why not use a number of other programs floating around that do what you're trying?
Radmin, Remote Desktop, etc. etc..
It's platform specific, browse around MSDN.
However, I would recommend setting up WinSSH on the computers and doing it that way ;)
