look for your phantom process in it - and tell me what it says the cmd
line is. This should be at least the path of the executeable.
I usually use process explorer by sysinternals, but I'll check it out.
And no there's no way you can save it from RAM unless the program itself gave you that option. It is possible, but the required tools do not exist, and it may not be something a tool can do. You'd have to write a program to specifically save that program.
So I could
write a program to do it then right? Are you sure you couldn't write a program that could save any program in RAM?
Also, the technique you refer to in having it execute and delete
itself - isn't useful and therefor I don't see why anybody would do it. Rebooting the computer would cease its existance.
I meant, if you have a program on your computer and you run it, then delete the program, can you save it from the RAM in which it's running in any way? Thanks for your patience.

BTW, you may have realized I was the one with the null username.
