I use Windows XP Home Edition SP2

quietman7 mentioned tasklist.exe in another forum. I tried to run it today in the command module "tasklist /SVC" and received an error message something like this: this is not a valid command or .... (I'll try running it again and record the actual message when I get home). I tried changing spacing and capitalization as I have found that to be an issue in the past. I kept getting the same message.

I then searched for tasklist.exe using search, but did not find it. Is this a file/program that came with Windows XP and somehow got deleted or uninstalled or moved (I was a complete dolt when I first got my computer, and I'm sure I deleted and changed stuff I shouldn't have) or is this an extra utility from elsewhere? How can I get it back on or on my computer?

tasklist.exe is only in XP Pro, not in Home Edition. Sorry.
