I would like to keep track of the amount of time a process is opened on Windows 7. Is there an utility that does this?

The process will be the process of a game or of an IM program. I want to program to:

  • If 'process (Battlfield for example) opened' and 'last keystroke' < 60s than count.
  • The counter doesn't reset when de process is closed, it just stops counting.
  • The counter will be reset at night.

It's not clear what you want. A process is running even when you're not actively using it, so idle time bears no significance. Are you interested in the time (duration) you're actually using a process, when it's frontmost and you're actively using the computer? – Daniel Beck Dec 18 '11 at 22:08
Thanks for your remark. Edited my post. – SuperSpy Dec 19 '11 at 7:49

You could try to use ManicTime for this.

This is certainly a good option. Thanks. I think this will do the job. – SuperSpy Dec 20 '11 at 12:02
