The problem Niles has is probably something like the following scenario:

You want to see how much resources the OTHER apps hog. But when is
running you will always see 100%.

The problem is solved LOCALLY with pause-watch-plist=taskmgr|mmc.

REMOTELY it's another story since taskmgr isn't run on the machine
peeked upon.

This is NOT to hide in anyway but to be able too see how much
resources apps use without

This applies to programmers, network engineers and others also. So this
is a legitimate question for a legitimate purpose.

I'd have to question your motives here.  You are aware that you're only
install the client on machines which you either own or have been
premission to install the software on.  Installing the software on
machines where the owner does not give permission could cost us the
contest, as per RSA rules.  Why are you going to such lengths to hide
fact that the dnetc client is running?
