I have moderate, trial and error computer knowledge. Well, my Windows Task manager is chock full of processes, such as four svchost.exe processes. Well how do I find out why they are opening in the first place? They must be related to a program, and I'd like to know which in order to determine its usefulness, or harm, and whether and how to end it from initiating at startup. I would think that Windows knows, for example to actuate its End Process Tree command accessable through Task Manager. Does anyone know how to relate those processes to a particular program or file location?
