But what good is a malware study tool if the malware can trivially 
detect it's there? What if it doesn't infect the machine, but just run 

There are Windows tools that do similar things to what you need (check 
out the sys-internals web site), where the environment is much more 
close to the real thing.

Actually, Dan's question is the more interesting here - did the malwares 
work under wine?
