[Question] How to detect which program is running.
« on: February 14, 2008, 07:11:12 am »

Hi,

My friend's computer often appears strange messagebox. And I don't know which program is generating that message. I wonder if we can detect which progarm is running via its windows or which program is generating that message. manual or by a specific software?

Note: if we use a process manager like processXP by sysinternals. we can only know a list of running applications.

If you know, let me know.

Thank you,
H.A.C

Win32 debugger will help enormously, if you have access to it. IIRC, borland's C++/Delphi compiler came with a windows message trace program called a "winspy" or something else. This program will show you which windows belong to which executable.
