As an additional datum, the WMI event management code
(at least for process creation) works by polling, not
by receiving events from the underlying O/S. That
means that it's possible to miss a creation event.
If you want to be certain to close down certain processes,
you'll need roll-your-own polling and look for the existence
of a process, not its creation.
