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
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?
