Thread: Process Management

    Process Management

    Hello,

    I have been trying to figure out how to Terminate a process in Delphi, and I saw shockingly long of code which i don't think I can remember, and i don't even understand what it means.

    Could someone please show me the simplest way (but not a bad way) in which i can terminate a process in Delphi?

    and also start processes and check to see if they are running, and how to get a list of running processes.

    Thank you.
    Nicholas.

    Application.Terminate only terminates my application...

    In that case, the code you saw was probably long and complicated by a requirement to obtain the necessary privileges (I think) to be able to shut down other processes.

    My question is why do you want to terminate other processes?

    The JCL has code functions to terminate another process, and retrieve a list of processes if that's what you're after. I messed with it once a few years back.

    hello

    How to find processes and how to kill one?

    see this http://www.pscode.com/vb/scripts/Sho...=tp%2FL7562208

    I want to know how to terminate processes because i'm making a suspicious process monitor, which will automatically terminate malicious processes.

    Code:
    var
     startup&#58;_startupinfoa;
     pi&#58;_process_information;
    begin
    // Start application
     zeromemory&#40;@startup,sizeof&#40;startup&#41;&#41;;
     startup.cb&#58;=sizeof&#40;startup&#41;;
    
     createprocess&#40;nil,'program name and parameters',nil,nil,false,0,nil,nil,startup,pi&#41;;
    
    // wait program terminates
     waitforsingleobject&#40;pi.hProcess,infinite&#41;;
    To terminate a task, i suppose terminateprocess would be used. To enumerate the running tasks, i don't know... never had to use any of those 2 features. Go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/library look up terminateprocess and click on the link at the bottom of the page that lists all process functions, you should find what you're looking for there.

    ... just quickly checked, and it seems there's a function named enumprocesses... that should be what you want. As for the security thing, you likely don't have to bother with this if you're on your home machine since you should have all priviledges. If you're at work however... you might have to.

    to enumerate all running processes, use EnumProcesses in PsApi.pas....just create a big longword array (it's not predictable how many processes are running at time when you invoke it)....it will fill the array with process ids.... to obtain a handle for the process, call OpenProcess....then you can do whatever you like with the process....

    To use PSapi I would have to say "uses PSapi" ?

    but after using the EnumProcess, how do I terminate and so on?
