comment How to increase delay of ssh root access every time login fails
I had migrated it to unix SE. But also I think this question has enough security focus to remain here, maybe unix SE is more better place for him (finally I voted with schroeder, only because I think migration is a good thing, but unix SE migration path doesn't exist).

You are working on destroying somebodys life because of a, maybe really unacceptable, email? It is so... evil.

comment Is there a way to completely eliminate any 32-bit support on a 64-bit windows?
@fixer1234 Unfortunately, SYSWOW64 is there, it comes with windows. And, except win2k8 server, it can't be even uninstalled. Of course, I can avoid to install any 32-bit, (or check their existence from task manager and exterminate them if I find one), but I had been more happy with a cleaner solution, for example with a not-so-advertised registry setting or such.

@fixer1234 It doesn't matter, what is coming from the marketing division of the micro$oft, how do they reason that they are INCAPABLE to port their 32-bit software to their own 64-bit OS, the truth is that running 32-bit apps on a 64-bit os IS emulation, at least in the sense that they are running in a non-standard, simulated environment.

comment Is there a way to completely eliminate any 32-bit support on a 64-bit windows?
@fixer1234 It is factually false - running a 32-bit app requires from the OS to create a 32-bit memory map, and load 32-bit dlls into that. Next to that, the 32-bit mode of the intel cpus has and uses extensive segmenting, while in 64-bit mode the segmenting functionality of the cpu is very limited. If the (64-bit) OS doesn't enable this, if the (64-bit) OS doesn't have the support to bridge over this differences, the 32-bit apps won't work.

@LieRyan Unfortunately, this question wasn't about it is needed or not. This question was about, how can I reach that. I didn't said my goal, because I wanted to avoid exactly what you did: that somebody comes here and says exactly, what you said - instead of he gave my a better option as to switch to win2k8 server. If I want a pointless debate about the usability of the 64bit-only systems, I will ask a such question. Unfortunately, I didn't have any better option as to sign your comments as "not constructive" and as "offtopic". Now please, go away.

Maybe a crash weren't needed, only an exit(0) - equivalent of the windows api?

Wonderful solution (maybe a little bit really brute). Can I guarantee for a such dll to load always?
