Hi,

I seem to have something on my computer that is constantly keeping my services.exe tied up, my hard drive light is constantly on and I cannot

hibernate the computer as it is constantly busy.

I have scanned for viruses with several progs but to no avail, I have also scanned for malware no luck.

Is there an app that will tell me what is using services ?

Any help appreciated...

Thanks In Advance
Acestu

You have to use Google to see exactly what listed processes might be, Task Manager may not explain fully.
