| ||Ask HN: What prevents Microsoft from adding a 'secure mode' to combat cheating?|

|Could Microsoft (using them as an example since gaming is my focus) implement something in the kernel so that applications can "opt in" at the request of the user to be isolated from other processes?|
Imagine I run a game server and demand that players who play on it must put their client into secure mode where even if they have root or admin rights, they can't read or write to the memory of the secure process.
Is there any technical or other reason why MS doesn't provide a secure layer inside of windows for applications like online games?
