Retrieve process time in memory in VB

I have certain scrip that gets process amount of memory, however i need not add another case where i need to check also the TIME in memory of the process. I know that when memory is over 40MB it causes trouble, so the process is killed by the script, however i need also to get the time in memory because when its longer than certain minutes it causes trouble as well.

What should i add?

Option Explicit
Dim objWMIService, objProcess, objFSO, objTextFile
dim colProcess,colServices, colItems
dim objItem, objService
dim objFSO2, objTextFile2
Dim strComputer, strProcessKill, strProcessMem
Dim memLimit, processMem
Dim mustKill
Dim WshShell
Const ForAppending = 8

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
strComputer = "."
strProcessKill = "'DLLHOST.EXE'"
strProcessMem = "'DLLHOST'"
memLimit = 40000
mustKill = 0
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = " & strProcessKill )

dim intRC
For Each objProcess in colProcess    
    processMem = objProcess.WorkingSetSize/1024
    Set objFSO2 = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objTextFile2 = objFSO2.OpenTextFile ("c:\ejecuciones_dllhost.txt", ForAppending, True)
    objTextFile2.WriteLine(now & vbnewline & " Process has been CHECKED with " & processMem & " Kb" & vbnewline & vbNewLine)

                If processMem >= memLimit Then
		       mustKill = 1
                End If  
    if mustKill = 1 then		
 	Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile ("c:\informe_dllhost.txt", ForAppending, True)

	objTextFile.WriteLine(now & vbnewline & " Process has been killed with " & processMem & " Kb" & vbnewline & vbNewLine)
	wshShell.Run "cmd /k C:\pskill.exe -accepteula dllhost.exe", 1, True	
    end if

You would do well to move the FSO object instantiation (for your logging) outside of the loop.

There is:
CreationDate :  date process was created (Ex.: 20150715121535.303886+060)

UserModeTime and KernelModeTime : time spent in each mode
David L. HansenCEOCommented:
You may benefit from the ASP profiler, which could help get the time stamps for you. Beyond that, if you work in Visual Studio, the built in profiler is a great tool for doing serious, in-depth, performance analysis.

How would i use a CreationDate instance for this purpose?
