Re:giving clueless advice to clueless newbies

This is getting ridiculous! Mark, I totally agree with you.

Using NtResumeThread is not only wrong in the sense it is not documented but
it is also a bad design. Use events! And it’s also easy.

ClueStick ™ rules for gurus:

Rather than helping people inadvertently commit project suicide, the people
who hand out advice on this list ought to reflect about who is posting,
their apparent level of expertise, and what they are trying to accomplish.

Mayank was given a complete, documented, legitimate solution to his problem,
using worker threads and events. Why are we continuing to provide him with
the details on the wrong solution? Hacking unexported kernel functions might
be justified in some small number of cases, but it is never justified when
there are other completely functional solutions.

Sure! It was just basic example. To satisfy all 2K/XP/.NET it’s necessary to
use names for searching through SSDT.
