You will have a problem doing this solely in VBScript, the reason being that you don't have access to API calls which are necessary. You could easily create an activex dll in VB which can be called from the VBScript routine to achieve this if you want. I can give you VB code to determine the existence of processes, it would be up to you after that to write the necessary information using FSO unless you encapsulated the whole lot into the dll.
