I am writing a program in vb.net and I need to get the CPU percentage of a particular process, the window task manager seems to get this. I need to monitor this process so that I can kill rogue processors.  The closest I have come is using WMI Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Processor class PercentProcessorTime but I only get 0 or 100.
