Oh yes, I forgot to mention that.

I know about that fact, and I am not going to violate this policy.

The fact is, I'm talking about a machine, which is owned by me and a
friend. Because of some stupid reasons, he likes to antagonize me and
stops the services every time he founds it.
Well, the "rename the service"-trick does work for some time, but now
he found the taskmgr, and I do not have any clue how to prevent him
from stopping this.

Everything would be fine if I could rename the task to System Idle
Process or something similar! ;)

It's just a small war between to nerds, nothing special, no violation
of d.nets policies... ;)
