you'll need to add "using System.Diagnostics" at the beginning

By the user name you can define whether current process is running with administrator privileges.
Process[] processes = Process.GetProcesses();
foreach (Process p in processes)
{
  Console.WriteLine("Process: " + p.ProcessName);
  Console.WriteLine("User Name: " + p.StartInfo.UserName);
  Console.WriteLine();
}
