How do I monitor what application is executed when my application is running, what system event is it? And how can I pass the application name to a function, along with stopping the application from running. I know this can be done with group policy, but how do I do it via VB.NET?

not tried any process monitor ability, maybe with wmi,
http://www.winnetmag.com/WindowsScripting/Articles/ArticleID/15643/pg/2/2.html
can search through all running processes
      Dim pr As Process
      Dim prs As Process()
      Dim index As Integer
      prs = Process.GetProcesses
      For index = 0 To prs.Length - 1
        Try
          pr = prs(index)
          if pr.ProcessName = "kill me"
             pr.Kill()
          End If
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
      Next
can find out name pr.ProcessName, where the exe for process is pr.MainModule.FileName etc. (to decide if to stop it) http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/02/09/AdvancedBasics/default.aspx

Well those links don't really have what I am looking for. Example, say I only want the IEXPLORE.exe to be allowed, how would I do that?
