Default Processes Monitoring Software

I have an .exe process that starts up periodically throughout the day. When it starts up, it also starts another .exe process to assist.

When the initial .exe process has completed it's task, it closes down correctly. The problem is, it needs to also shut down the secondary .exe and it's not.

What I'm looking for is some sort of software that monitors windows processes and when it sees a certain .exe process has stopped running, shuts down other predefined processes automatically.

Is there anything like that on the market? I've seen a lot of monitors, but none that I can select which things to watch for.

Thanks for your time.

Have you looked at Microsofts Process Explorer and /or Process Monitor?
