How to have my program find another program?

Greetings! I'm very new to C++, and I for the life of me cannot figure out how to get this to work.

Task: I'm writing a program to be run on a Windows environment which I need to, every 10 seconds, check to see if another specific program is running.

Problem: I don't know how to make a program do that.

I know there's a way to make a program poll the system to get a list of programs running (as displayed in taskmanager), and that's really all I need to do. It's the key to this program; everything else rests on that. Once I've got the list, I can make everything else work.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
