Processes Enumeration: How it works



They are several ways to enumerate processes running in Windows space:
  • the Process Status Helper (PSAPI) library
  • the ToolHelp32 API
  • the undocumented ZwQuerySystemInformation function
  • the performance counters
  • the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) interface

KillProcess 4.3 uses the function ZwQuerySystemInformation to perform this enumeration.
