Hide Subprocesses in Explorer

Question asked by damokles on Feb 8, 2012
If you use detached subprocesses they appear in the normal process overview and can be started by users.
This is bad in several ways:
  • Users get confused which process to run

  • The subprocess is not designed to run alone

  • You can check if the subprocess was started by the user directly and end it, but this leaves a bad user experience
How difficult would it be to hide them from the process list.
Maybe add a special prefix like underscore or dollar to the name to mark them as subprocesses so that they are not listed in the process list.

Any thoughts?
