I need a user mode app to receive notifications when a new process is created. It will run on XP and on our kit (win CE) so kernel hooking is out, for the time being at least. It would also be particularly poor to periodically query the process list.

I don't need a hook, just a notification. Is there no way of doing this in Windows?
Cheers in advance
