No, and nobody probably ever will, as this API *solely* serves the purpose of monitoring file systems.

To check whether a certain process is running, see http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q175/0/30.ASP ('HOWTO: Enumerate Applications on Win32').

To check which services are running, see http://www.microsoft.com/msj/defaultframe.asp?page=/msj/0298/service.htm&nav=/msj/0298/newnav.htm ('Manipulate Windows NT Services by Writing a Service Control Program') which is a good information source on how to use the Service Control Manager API to achieve that.

Feel free to ask if you need more information!
