Process Stalker makes custom process monitoring easy by allowing you to select any running processes on a system, mark them and check regularly that they are running. You can truncate the length of process command lines to identify unique processes that you want to confirm are running when required.

Process Stalker can be scheduled using the Windows Task Scheduler and can send an email notification when processes are not running. This is a very simple but very powerful monitoring tool

In the FREE edition checks can only be run manually. All features are available in the FULL version.

Process Stalker has no installation and works on Windows XP,2003,Vista,7,8 and 2008 but requires the .Net Framework 3.5 to be installed.
