This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You've already asked this, better too: – random Jan 30 '10 at 1:07

If you are running Vista or Win 7 you could try using a scheduled task that is triggered by an event log entry. Assuming that your utilities make event log entries.

You could also use something like Automate. Automate can check to see if the process is running, as well as the event logs. It can also automate the running of the utilities. That said, it is very expensive.

I think there are other automation tools maybe able to monitor the presence of processes, but I can't recall them now.
