Hm. If you want to know more about what the process is doing, then, you need a profiling tool. Such tools can show you all the threads and what they allocate. It depends on what technology your process was built on. If it's using .NET Framework (for example) you can try the ANTS Profiler.

Give that a try. It's called process monitor. It's a more advanced tool than the built in one.

Looking for free tools, have already used process monitor. This is more to view inside the apps.
