Okay,

Some program keeps running every 15 mintues about on my computer. It makes my monitor come out of standby and turn back on and I don't know what else it does. I have no idea what it is, really...

I'm currently running a virus scan and I'm gonna run an Adware scan also.

However, is there any ways I can log Windows Task Manager's Processes list.... so that it keeps track of what task runs when?

Like say at 8:00am it is running 44 tasks, then at 8:15 it is running 45 tasks. If I could get a list of the tasks it was running at those two times I could compare them and find out what that program is that is running.

Or, if you have any other suggestions to solving this problem I'd love to hear it!

Thanks,
Palatnick

I don't know of a tool that will do this but here is a vbscript that will log the processes to the root of C:

Save the code to a file - something.vbs and have it run every few minutes using task scheduler or something.
