NoVirusThanks Process Logger Service Description

It’s impossible to keep track of everything that’s going on on your computer without resorting to specialized software. If you’re looking for a simple tool that monitors running processes and creates log files, you can try NoVirusThanks Process Logger Service.

This isn’t a typical application that has a graphical interface with buttons and menus. Instead, it runs as a simple service in the background of your computer, continuously monitoring all processes and taking action whenever one of them gets launched (either manually or automatically).

Monitors processes and logs events to file

A wide range of technical information is gathered on the processes, which may prove practical for a range of reasons, such as checking file integrity using MD5 hashes, finding out the version of installed software to help you figure out if it’s time to upgrade to a newer version, or discovering which application is making use of a process you have little details about.

It might be tricky to get NoVirusThanks Process Logger Service up and running correctly, even with the instructions available in the downloaded package. It’s necessary to install the batch file with administrative rights to avoid running into file access errors, as well as to visit Windows Services and make sure the path to the service executable is correctly specified (otherwise, you have to copy the files to the correct location by yourself).

View info about process events and configure settings

Once you get NoVirusThanks Process Logger Service up and running properly, it starts creating plain text documents (.txt) with log files for each running process. These are neatly organized into different files by date. Collected info includes the process full path, command line, MD5 hash, publisher, description, version, integrity level, signer, whether it’s a system, protected or Metro process, and parent process. Separate entries are created in each log file whenever the process creates a new instance of itself.

Configuration can be made by editing the Config.ini file in a text editor. For example, you can disable MD5 hash calculation, change the default log path, exclude processes by folder, and delete old log files.

It worked smoothly on Windows 10 in our tests and had minimal impact on the computer’s performance. All aspects considered, NoVirusThanks Process Logger Service offers a simple solution for monitoring running processes and logging events.
