No. tree lists directories and files recursively. to list all running processes, you would use simply use the 'tasklist' command. if it's a more complicated blocking process running as a service, then you would use 'tasklist /svc' to list all processes with their services, and to get more information about services, you would use 'sc query' or 'sc queryex', or 'sc queryex <nameofservice>' to limit it to a specific service. From an IT standpoint, services would be better as they require admin privs to start/stop, can be started automatically, and can easily be set to shutdown the computer in case the service fails.
Hmm, anyone ever make a windows program that records who sent an exit command to it? Seems like it would be something useful against worms and in this type of situation.
