Process Explorer 16

Updates: Process Explorer v16.0, PsPing v2.01 - Sysinternals Site Discussion - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

Process Explorer v16.0: Thanks to collaboration with the team at VirusTotal, this Process Explorer update introduces integration with, an online antivirus analysis service. When enabled, Process Explorer sends the hashes of images and files shown in the process and DLL views to VirusTotal and if they have been previously scanned, reports how many antivirus engines identified them as possibly malicious. Hyperlinked results take you to report pages and you can even submit files for scanning.

Process Explorer was updated - but the info below seems to still apply as of 11 Jun 2015:

You can download Process Explorer from here:
Process Explorer

There is nothing to install.
Download the zipped (compressed) file
Open the zipped (compressed) file (folder)
Copy the files somewhere
Run the exe as admin
Agree to the EULA

If you select/highlight an EXE...
...and select the option to show DLLs in the lower pane
...the hashes of the DLLs are submitted too.

A setting that might help you to see processes as they start and end:
