Solution 1

Some processes run so deep in the operating system that .Net cannot get information about them. This is a security measure, to prevent possibly malicious apps from getting data no app should be allowed to get.
Added: Out of curiosity, I ran your code. The second process failed just like you described. I could get ProcessName, HPClientServices, but most of the other properties returned a string value of "Access is denied".
