A good start would be either of these two that return a collection of Processes:
        System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses()
        System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName()

My answer tells what processes are present. If you wanted to know if WinWord.exe were loaded in RAM, It could be ascertained by the information in the GetProcesses call.

The asker did not clarify any more. I think I should at least get some points for my answer.
