I have to track down an error and I want to run procmon on several computers automatically to catch that error. My problem is, that procmon shows a GUI even if the logged on user isn't the same as the user running procmon.

I need to know how to completely hide procmon. Otherwise it would irritate my users.

I have used cmdow in the past for similar situations, the only issue is that many Antivirus programs now flag this as a "virus" though it is not by any means. So you will have to add an exception.

cmdow /run /hid procmon.exe

Of course the above assumes that these files are placed in your %windir%\system32 directory

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll try that when I'm working on that error again and will let you know if it worked. – wullxz Jun 24 '11 at 11:29
