I wanted to monitor all the activity of a program, to see which files are being used, etc. I used Sysinternals excellent Process Monitor, which I've used before. However, as soon as I launch Process Monitor, the program in question shuts down and won't reopen until I've restarted the computer.
It appears that the program itself monitors for Process Monitor and shuts itself down when Process Monitor is detected.
I tried renaming the Process Monitor exe file name from procmon.exe to PM.exe, but that did not help. I notice that when launched, Process Monitor always runs as PM64.exe.
How can I get Process Monitor to run without the other program realizing that?
