I am looking for a site that list all the "process id's" in Windows XP with a description of all the processes involved with the various instances of svchost.exe.

I am aware of Systernals "Process Explorer" and use it, but not all instances of svchost.exe are running at any given time.

I have a running list pf process id's for svchost.exe that I have captured at different times and am looking for a simple way to identify what they are without having to run Process Explorer each time a new one comes up.

Anybody know of such a site that has a complete list of all possible svchost.exe process id's in Windows XP with a description of the services they control?

Thanks in advance!! CilyPudi

Have you checked out "How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process"?

Thank You quietman7. I was also told elsewhere that the PID's are not static, and change with each logon, and must be checked in real time to determine what services each instance of svchost.exe is controlling at that particular time.

In short, the "list" I was seeking cannot be created.

And I love this forum. CilyPudi

Yes, the PID's aren't static - but they generally stay the same, or nearly the same because they're running services all the time. Only if they're used part of the time will they change significantly (and I haven't ever noticed this on any of my systems).

I'd suspect that there was either a virus (not likely since this only happens part time) or a poorly designed program (most likely) that's only launched on occasion.

There are several ways to investigate svchost.exe and related processes.

If you have XP Pro, you can use Tasklist to view the list of services processes that are running in Svchost. The /SVC switch shows the list of active services in each process.

Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
press Ok
At the command prompt type: tasklist /svc >c:\taskList.txt
press Enter

Go to Start > Run and type: C:\taskList.txt
press Ok to view the list of processes

For help and syntax information, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
tasklist /?
or see: Syntax options

You can also use the WMI command-line utility to view and list processes.
Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
press Ok
At the command prompt type: WMIC /OUTPUT:C:\ProcessList.txt PROCESS get Caption,Commandline,Processid
or: WMIC /OUTPUT:C:\ProcessList.txt path win32_process get Caption,Processid,Commandline
press Enter

Go to Start > Run and type: C:\ProcessList.txt
press Ok to view the details of all the processes.

You can download and use Process Explorer to investigate all processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. This tool will show the process CPU useage, a description, company name and its path (location). If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you can gather additional information.

And you can search the process name using Google or Process ID.
