    Arrow process control

    Is it possible to control processes running ina system? i know its is difficult or not at all possible to control OS's processes. Atleast is there any way to control processes like vlc.exe, iexplorer.exe,etc.? I need to pause, resume and terminate the processes at my will.

    Yes, but I would advise strongly against it. Pausing/resuming/terminating another processes, especially if you did not create the process to be acted upon, is extremely prone to memory leaks and severe data corruption. Why would you want to do something like this?

    actually i have to create a list of all currently running processes. if a new process is started, it must be automatically paused and wait for user authentication. if user clicks OK, it should run, if user clicks NO, the process must be terminated.How for this is possible?

    I'd say this will be rather hard using pure Java.

    I'd say it was impossible in pure Java... Java can't "impede" on another process on it's own since it has no way of getting the memory pointer for that process, and also because doing this is highly platform dependent. The way to go with this is probably C/C++, and maybe use JNI if you want an easy to create GUI in Java.
