Process Watcher

I created an AutoIt script when I had a spyware attack so I could track it down.

This basically notifies you of a starting or stopping process. It has 3 modes of notification.

The included ReadMe.txt file contains important information on the operation of the script.

Yes, I am aware that the ReadMe is about as big as the script. The script could be smaller if I removed the blank lines and comments, but I guess it doesn't matter.

        MsgBox(262208,"New Process", $list2[$list2[0][0]][0] & "  ")
        $list[0][0] = $list2[0][0]
        $list[0][0] = $list2[0][0]
  ; if you close processes - this resets the list

Wow, 95 downloads. I'm suprised this had so many hits.

@Valuater: That is similar to how I started. I needed something to track new executables, but then I decided to add more information. It evolved into this overpowering log utility.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd like them. So far, I've been thinking of adding a filter to stop showing processes that run often or things that you know are safe. Also a full path of processes would be good. Maybe I'll write a full-fledged C++ application for that.
