WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) allows you to programmatically query the OS using WQL (a lot like SQL). The System.Management namespace in .NET provides WMI methods. For querying processes with WMI you'd use the Win32_Process WMI class. Just had a look at the WmiInspector plug-in and it does look very limited. The only option the plug-in gives is limited (WmiInspector::Request which may not be enough for what you are after). If .NET is a prerequisite then you might as well use that (and use the Process class).
