I KNOW I read in a past issue of my fav mag, that ther was a program that went thru all of the processes listed in XP( cntl , Alt, Del ) and identified exactly what each process was doing and where it came from. I had ment to go get this program several times but kept the mag in my " thinking area" , hehe.

well now I was determined to go get the issue and after flipping cover to cover thru about 10 issues from NOV back, I am stil unable to locate this program.

I know you guys digest these issues like I do, and know what im talking about.

I wanna say it was very close to the front sections of the mag, but again, since I 've looked there, I cant be sure.

any help is greatly welcomed. thanks in advance.

Well, I'm having trouble finding my issue with the 10 best utils you've never heard of, but in my other issues - I only saw a section on using MSCONFIG to look at the services being loaded... That util is included with Windows so I'm guessing thats not it :)

Try checking out this site:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4313.html

Its for a freeware App called "Service Controller XP".

It says its "a tool designed to control and get detailed information about the services running on your computer".

I've installed it to my test machine and have not seen any spyware/adware in it (from Ad Aware Pro or Spyware Blaster) and it did not contain any viruses according to AVG and eTrust....

Hope it helps!


Cheers,

thanks for a quick reply.

however, I think that the Services, and the Processes are two different things.

I will look at the program you suggested though, and thank you for your reply.

I found the following program through some online searching,

Process Viewer for Windows

It appears to be simpiler than the other program mentioned in this thread [which I haven't tried yet] but does the job of displaying a more detailed listing of the processes running on your system and their resources.

hehe ProcessXP - you know - as often as I check out that website - you'd think I would have thought to just go there first...

Oh well.. Call it a non-geek moment... :shock:
