//OpenProcess API, which is repetetively called by procexp and leaves a pointer (r14 in x64) pointing to its linked list of processes
//that is a structure less likely to be changed in a problematic way. Because of this, we must do as much validation to the r14 pointer
//as possible to avoid dereferencing bad memory from other cases OpenProcess is called.
