You should be able to find info about it using google. It might be impossible in newer OSes, but I know for sure it was possible in win95 and 98.

Just a quick question.
What are you guys talking about? what is ring-0, ring-3?; what does it refer to?

It is kinda like a kernal (or runtime mode). Linux does this to, by entering mode1 2 3 4 5 (6?) (the last one being X windows system)

I think you might be confusing init levels with kernel levels. They''re two completely different things... X windows has nothing to do with the kernel.

Does anyone know how to force your program into ring-0 mode (Kernel mode)?


Directly write your program as a kernel-mode driver. See the Windows DDK for more details. Good luck.
