If you mean Win32, the CriticalSection stuff works pretty well. I believe 
that NT
(not as sure about Win95) will still be able to kill off a misbehaving 
process, even
if its in a CriticalSection. On the other hand, it *will* make it easy for 
you to deadlock
yourself if you aren't careful. In a previous life, we used 
CriticalSections for our web
server without mishap...
