I'm sure there are other ways, but since no-one else has
replied yet, you could use wmi:
c = wmi.WMI ()
for p in c.Win32_Process (Name="thunderbird.exe"):
The example uses my wmi-wrapper module (Google for Python
WMI) but you can do WMI with raw pywin32 -- all the module
does is to make life a bit easier.
