    Block app


    Hi,

    There are several small programs that are trojans, spyware, etc. Their name is knowed. How can I detect in VB if a particular exe or dll is running, if it's trying to access the Internet and block it ?

    Kind regards,

    Kepler

    Since you specifically asked about doing this in VB I moved to the VB forum. But you'll need API.

    Check this program : http://www.allapi.net/agnet/appdown.shtml

    It's no longer developed, but it helped me through many many programs.

    Incidentally, what you're looking for is enumprocesses
