Well then

The solution(which i got from scripting section)
is that I'll use a common user who will start and kill the process

so instead of calling my script that creates the process I call another script that switches (temporary) to a common user then call the script that creates the process then switch back to the original user,and the same goes when I want to kill the process. but not forgetting that the new script should be Execute Only since it contains the password of the common user.

the whole idea is to make a single common user to create and kill the process

I hope everything is clear now

Thanks for your cooperation
