Sorry, I just re-read your mail and noticed you said process monitor, 
not explorer.

I've had issues with process *Explorer* on Vista. Process monitor works 
perfectly, but seems to lack some of the features of process explorer. 
This could have been system configuration specific, but I've seen enough 
reports to think it's probably not.

Anyway, this is way off topic.
