Service and Process menu options needlessly available in read-only mode.

- In the android app (not sure about others), when you have read-only access to a computer - visit either the "Process" or "Service" menu options.

- Clicking on a Process or Service in the list gives you an action menu item (eg. "Kill Process", "Cancel").


Although clicking the action reports that the action failed (so we're not talking about a security issue here), there is probably no need to provide these menus when in read-only mode in the first place.

Sure thing:


1) Android 4.1.2

2) Yes, I'm sure the computer is read-only (all my monitored computers are)

3) I should mention that I can also get this to happen on the IIS module as well (web pages and application pools).


Now, I can tell you that it seems to take more than a "normal" tap to make these menus appear. I find that by holding down on an item (service, process, whatever) for some duration of time, the menu appears (not just a simple quick tap). It seems odd, but I'm guessing perhaps the menu is invoked by some other event (eg. the android equivalent of a "double click" or something). 


Hope that makes sense..if you need further details, just let me know.

The fact that long press event is firing the tap event is very strange.Despite that it should not show you the dialog. Could I get a print screen with the processes view (after they load ) ? (you can pm or send it at support at mobilepcmonitor dot com)

Also , are you using stock rom ?
