How to create a Process Explorer log Messenger troubleshooting

The steps below will help you to create a Process Explorer log:
1. Visit the following Web site:

Note Process Explorer is a free utility that captures the processes that run on your computer so that you can create a log file of these processes. 
2.  Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then download the version of Process Explorer that applies to your operating system.
