Process Detected on Two different Desktop Sessions

Hi,
Application is running on another remote desktop session on the same PC (using remote desktop connection) and the following code is detecting both instances on the two different desktops.
What is the easiest way to  return only the number of processes  on this one remote desktop ?

Public Shared Function bCheck4Running(ByVal sApp As String) As Boolean

        Dim ps() As Process
        ps = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName(sApp) 
        'if more than one Tracker Pro open
        If ps.Length > 1 Then

            Call KillProcess("TrackerProSplashScreen") 
            MsgBox(sApp & " is already running!", MsgBoxStyle.Critical, sApp & " Failure") 

            Return True
        End If

        Return False
    End Function

you may check whether the "MachineName" property of the processes in the returned array would be different for the processes running at the remote desktop. if so, you could use an overload of GetProcessesByName which takes two arguments, one for the name and one for the machine.

if the machine name is not different you may check other properties for filtering. see
