Removing AccessDeniedAce


Recommended Posts


I'm making a program atm which needs to open other processes, however there are a few processes that I've come across that use AddAccessDeniedAce and SetSecurityInfo to prevent me from opening the process. I can't use SetSecurityInfo to remove this attribute because that requires a handle to the process, which I cannot obtain due the the ACE. I can reverse this easily, but I'm trying to code it into a program that will work on all apps.

Can someone give me some hints on how to open a process that's using AddAccessDeniedAce? I've been googling for quite a while but couldn't find anything useful. I don't want to do a system wide hook (at startup) because that would affect every process.
