Looking for ways to list running processes/services

Hi,

Need some advice. I am looking for different ways to list the running processes and services on all of the following flavors of Windows:

XP, 2000, 2003

Preferably, the utility should be the same utility for all above flavors of Windows. Also, I am not considering utilities from the Windows Resource Kit.

Hi AS,

I always use Task Manager for this.

Start | Run |cmd

then:

net start

will give you a nice list of running services. OR you can make it a bat file and let it create a file for you.

net start >runningjunk.txt

HijackThis is quite nice too:

Since it also lets you do something about them.

Process Explorer:

Pcoket Killbox is another one that tells you what is running and allows you to stop it.

Hi

You can look at process explorer from www.sysinternals.com

If you want to manipulate it look here

There is pstools if you want to manipulate it from the command line ... maybe send to a text file and mail etc etc

The best (and free) utility is Vision. Shows processes w/PID, runing apps and all ports in use, INCLUDING the program using it. Free download from :
