Use the Toolhelp32 functions like Process32First and Process32Next. The returned data consists of many helpful things (Path, PID, and so on...).

Hi P,

I'm not sure what you mean. Is is something like this :
var
 h : HWND;
begin
 h:=FindWindow(nil, 'Internet Explorer');

/PL

var
  wnd:HWND;
  caption:string;
begin
wnd:=GetTopWindow;
repeat
  SetLength(caption,GetWindowtextLength(wnd));
  GetWindowText(wnd,@caption[1],length(caption));

  if pos("Internet Explorer ",caption)>0 then ...

  wnd:=GetNextWindow(wnd,GW_HWNDNEXT);
until wnd=0;

end;

The code is right if the caption is Internet Explorer, but you can edit this caption in the registry. You will have to find the IE's window names and compare them.

But the question is answered and it ís simple and good...
