    Karthik,

    I could understand the code in high level. tried executing this in Visual C++ 2008 (Express edition) and got some errors similar to this. any clue?

    1>Linking…
    1>murugan.obj : error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A0002A4) “extern “C” int __stdcall AdjustTokenPrivileges(void *,int,struct _TOKEN_PRIVILEGES *,unsigned long,struct _TOKEN_PRIVILEGES *,unsigned long *)” (?AdjustTokenPrivileges@@$$J224YGHPAXHPAU_TOKEN_PRIVILEGES@@K1PAK@Z) referenced in function “int __cdecl LoggedSetLockPagesPrivilege(void *,int)” (?LoggedSetLockPagesPrivilege@@$$FYAHPAXH@Z)

    i downladed Turbo C++ and later found some header files like windows.h is not available.
    so downloaded Visual C++ 2008 Express and trying your programs one by one. #statusupdate
