causes SysInternals' Process Monitor to not refresh on Windows XP x64


I run both SQL 2005 Service Manager and SysInternals' Process Monitor on x86 workstation, no problem. But on x64 platform (Windows XP) Process Monitor ceases to function when SQL 2005 Service Manager is run...its windows no longer refresh. As soon as SQL 2005 Service Manager is terminated, Process Monitor again begins to work. Very repeatable. This is on a relatively new/clean install with no observed problems.
I have not noticed any other apps suffer when SQL 2005 Service Manager runs, nor have I found any other apps that cause Process Monitor to have this problem.

Apologies for the delay, I've finally got a x64 VM running XP up and running and am unable to reproduce this issue. I am using Process Monitor and don't seem to have any issues whether SQL 2005 Service Manager is running or not. I also tried Process Explorer and no issues with that either. Are you able to provide any more details about the issue?
