Managing Processes 

You can use the Process component to start and stop processes and to retrieve information about your running processes on a computer. For example, you might use an instance of the Process component to determine whether a process had stopped responding. If the value returned true, you could have the component force the process to stop or prompt the user with the information and offer a choice of options.

You can use the Process component to create applications that allow you to view and manipulate processes and their property values. The pages in this section cover the various tasks associated with managing process using the Process component.
