It is possible with one of these way:

  • Hooking into windows library dll that provides the api to list running process, then redirect the call into your own code.
  • By hacking into task manager program itself. I mean remote controlling it. When you detect that a task manager is running, you then look into its controls. Find list view control that lists running processes, then find your process and manipulate the corresponding listview item to show something else.
