dwm.exe

Completely locking down Windows 7 using Python 3.2?

This might be a more difficult question since I don't even know how to do it outside of Python...

I want to write a terminal program that completely locks up my PC until a password is entered. In the locked state no one should be able to do anything outside the terminal. In it, the user may rampage and write silly commands, but he should not be able to switch windows, click outside of it, open the task manager, open the menu with Ctrl + Alt Gr + Del and so on.

While searching for a way to accomplish this I've thought of two approaches that Python is also able to do:


Modifying the registry -> can disable task manager and some other functions, but not the app switcher neither the menu
Task-killing explorer.exe and dwm.exe -> killing explorer.exe just removed the taskbar, killing dwm.exe seems like the right way, but as it's the window manager it automatically boots up itself again as soon as it gets killed


I know this is a kind of weird question and doesn't contain any code snippet, but the front-end is no problem and as said I don't even got a working approach for the back-end.

dwm.exe: F12 not working in Delphi debugger on Windows 7/8

Pressing F12 while the program is running in the debugger should break the execution and open the debugger. This works correctly on Windows XP (tested with D2007 and XE2) but fails on Windows 7 and 8 (also tested with D2007 and XE2; tested on three computers).

Registry is set up properly (Windows 7):


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAeDebug]
'UserDebuggerHotKey'=dword:00000000
'Debugger'=''C:Windowssystem32vsjitdebugger.exe' -p %ld -e %ld'

dwm.exe: Lost Windows 7 transparency DWM not working properly

After installing new theme from Microsoft (http://windows.microsoft.com/hr-HR/windows/downloads/snowflakes-and-frost-theme) my Windows 7 lost all its transparency (Aero) effects and placed Windows Basic as the actual theme.
I've been googling for my problem for an hour now and I have not found any solutions.
All my attempts to fix this issue have failed.


I've tried running the standard wizard for for fixing transparency problems and I got a response:

dwm.exe: BitmapCache causes WPF application to lock up

Here's the scenario:

1: Our WPF application starts

2: The WPF application loads various user controls, including some that use the new BitmapCache feature in WPF 4

3: Hit ctrl-alt-delete or win+l or load another application which requires UAC

4: Cancel that stuff

The WPF application is now unresponsive, however it's WPF itself which is the problem. All the application logic on all the background threads is fine, and you can interact with it by pressing alt+f4,

dwm.exe: Problem with explorer.exe and dwm.exe in Windows 7 [closed]

I'm using Window 7 Ultimate. I get a problem with two processes, namely explorer.exe and sometimes dwm.exe.

The two processes tend to use cpu between 20-30%.

And it only occurs when i play some game on my PC. My PC works perfect until I play some game.

And another important observation:
They consume no cpu as such but only consumes when I try to refresh my desktop. I mean when I right-click on desktop. It takes seconds for refresh.

I have no virus problems.

dwm.exe: Dwm.exe memory leak when resizing simple WinForm application

I created very simple Winform application in VS2010 (just a standard template File->New->Project->C# Windows Forms Application).

After several form resizes the system memory consumption can increase by 1Gb or more! And this memory is not returned to the system after application closing. Selecting Classic theme or killing dwm.exe helps to get memory back.

Here is the simple video I recorded to show the problem: http://youtu.be/ZJMCayflrHI

dwm.exe: Delphi 7 - Screenshot without capturing form - Windows 8 - DWM.exe

Friends,

Need to screenshot of the all desktop WITHOUT MY FORM and load in TImage.
Success in Windows XP, 7 - with just ALPHABLEND = TRUE + SCREENSHOT PROCEDURE.

But same code does not work in Windows 8 - capture all screen INCLUDING THE FORM.

I know the problem is related to AERO - DWM.EXE - success using pssuspend.exe (sysinternals) - suspending winlogon.exe and killing dwm.exe

Someone could tell me how to capture all desktop without my form also in Windows 8?

dwm.exe: VB6 Drag and Drop Performance in Windows 8

I have a rather large VB6 application that features dragging and dropping controls between sub forms in an MDI application. The problem is the performance is really bad during the drag operation. You can see the element redrawing (slowly) as you drag it.

I first encountered this issue in Windows 7 and after some research concluded that it was a compatibility issue with the Aero interface. I was able to work around it by switching off the Aero effects. Now I am using Windows 8 the problem

dwm.exe: Performance issue when resizing Win32 containing WPF

I am in the process of migrating an existing legacy project. For now we want to use C++/CLI as a bridge between business logic (native C++) and interface (WPF).

There are serious delays and the window is repainting slowly.

dw20.exe: ASP.NET Web App freezing on an exception, dw20.exe hanging at 100% CPU

Apologies for the open endedness of this question, but I really don't know what to say.

I've done something to my ASP.NET MVC Web Application to cause an exception which is probably occuring due to an NHibernate mapping error to cause dw20.exe to run at ~ 50% CPU usage (100% on one core). The browser doesn't respond until IIS times out, and the debugger never hits an exception, everything just freezes :s

Anyone got any ideas as to where to start with this?

lsass.exe: How to get debugging information when custom SSP crashes on customer machine at boot?

We've written a custom Security Support Provider package. It works fine in our development environment, but a customer reports that most of the time, it gets into a reboot loop, where they install, the machine reboots and continues rebooting. On some machines things work about 1/8 of the time.

In our development environment, I'd enable kernel debugging before the install, and use gflags to attach ntsd as a debugger to lsass.exe. This article gives a sample. I'd even be happy to walk t
