i want to know about the list of windows hooks so that i can make an antikeylogger based on it.
so before you get up on your high horse take that into consideration.
the more knowledge that is shared on creating the perfect keylogger the more knowledge that is shared on how to defeat it.
first off, if you're seriously concerned, ask your doctor...not MSFN.
secondly, i think if caffeine was in your soda it would be the least dangerous of all the ingredients (except for water).
in moderate amounts none of the ingredients should pose a serious health risk, but too much of anything is bad.
i have a beat up old drive with ancient videos and they're fine.
you probably need to defrag your files. also make sure any antivirus is disabled before playing video.
if you're paranoid you can RAR the more important ones, then you'll know if they degrade at all, because if they do the files will fail the CRC check on extraction.
A man scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive woman standing alone. He approached her and asked her name.
"My name is Carmen," she told him.
"That's a beautiful name," he said. "Is it a family name?"
"No," she replied. "I gave it to myself. It reflects the things I like most - cars and men."
"What's your name?" she asked.
"Beertits" he replied.
okay, on a more serious note: no, i don't think nlite needs any particular services. i keep mine cut down to a bare minimum.
i think installing a few more .Net frameworks will fix it.
i'm partial to Wrox books myself:
haven't read their VB.Net book, but I have an excellent C# one from them.
i knew exactly what you meant. and i would still like to know what you find out
another thing to keep in mind is how you store your log. one of the more low tech ways to detect a keylogger is to watch the filesystem and keep an eye out for logs.
i think an ingenious way to log the info would be using unicode registry keys with embedded nulls.
umm...isn't lupus a disease?
let's see the code you're having trouble with, what it's doing, and what you'd like it to be doing
how would master/slave setting on his HD kill video signal?
probably shorted out something on your mobo. it sounds like you've tested everything else.
i've had times trying to astral travel that i get caught in sleep paralysis with the loud banging vibrations all over. it's freaky as hell.
are you working on an antikeylogger?
you have a really good question actually, i've never thought about that before. please share what you find out.
i've been using a program by Microsoft called StartCD, it's pretty nice.
you can find it on the XP Embedded CD or the Feature Pack 2007 disk:
setup.exe is StartCD and it uses startcd.ini, there's no documentation available that i can find, but it's pretty self explanatory if you look at the .ini.
i guess there are a few different kinds of hooks.
found this page which gives a simple explanation of the different hook techniques and a tool called APIHookCheck.
the tool comes with source & makefile too
haha, thanks jondercik!! i can't believe i missed that. well, okay...i can. i was more than a little tired when i was trying to figure this out. thanks for babying me and telling me the exact property i needed
here's the code i ended up using in C#:
ManagementClass MC = new ManagementClass("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration");
ManagementObjectCollection MOC = MC.GetInstances();
foreach (ManagementObject MO in MOC)
if ((bool)MO["ipEnabled"] && MO["DNSHostName"] != null)
string DNS = (string)MO["DNSServerSearchOrder"];
do you mean the part circled in red?
that looks like a ToolStrip control with alternating labels and separators
... nevermind it's not
which of those was supposed to tell me my DNS server?
personally i think Visual Basic is the best beginning language for Windows programmers.
it will introduce you to the concepts of programming in Windows, give you a solid grasp of dealing with objects, and will ease you into the more advanced topics.
later on as you become more comfortable you'll be able to delve into the Win32 API if you want and learn about the more advanced aspects of Windows and .Net programming.
there are also tons and tons of VB examples online to learn from. after you get tired of VB or reach it's limitations (not sure if there are any in .Net, i haven't used it) you can migrate to C#, which can be remarkably similar to VB .Net.First off, any programmer who wants to become serious will have to learn a serious language. The only serious languages IMHO are the C languages. C and C++ are starting to get a little old, so my recommendation goes towards C#.
If you want to code games, DirectX in C# will do wonders.
comparing C and C++ to C# is apples and oranges. and the only thing that makes C# a viable language for game programming is our turbo speed CPUs and gigs of RAM that most people have these days. the game engines that professional game studios license are always coded in C++.
it doesn't look like it, but thanks.
i thought it would be quick and easy to get this info, but it's tucked away somewhere.
i've looked at the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WMI class, and nothing there is useful.
(the DNSDomain and DNSHostName properties sound promising but aren't)
i can get the information from the registry, but that's a last resort.
anyone know how to get the DNS server (like is displayed on Status -> Support -> Details on your current connection) through WMI or another API?
just used this for the first time today to do some quick n dirty source edits, very nice!
i like how if you click on a brace it tells you the ending brace just like an IDE
if any of your AVIs have normal audio (like AC3) many newer DVD players will play it. you can get a cheapo $35 Philips DVD player that will play Divx and Xvid just fine.
that way you won't be converting your video from one lossy format to another.
ShellExecute & RUNAS question
in Programming (C++, Delphi, VB/VBS, CMD/batch, etc.)

i read your post too quickly. i thought you were just running "cmd.exe /c runas"
