sendmail is known for changing its ps line. There is a python module
that demonstrates various methods:


Ways to do it include setproctitle(), pstat(), modifying argv, writing
to /dev/kmem (!), calling exec(), etc. I have no idea if it is possible
on Windows, or even if the parameters are visible on Windows.
