Im running vista x64 and it seems to be eating a lot of memory..any ideas?
I don't know, but have always wondered.
I have about an average of 5 to 15 of them running, and some are doing over 15,000KB
weird, the total of all of mine running is over 300mb of ram..im just curious what they all are!
type services.msc in the search box on the start bar
See all those listed as automatic and manual? They're all running in those svchost entries
Best part of windows is called svchost
good call..thanks for that info!
svchost= services host
For more information on which SVCHOST is "hosting" which services, run cmd and type:
Services listing: Tasklist /SVC
Get more info: Tasklist /FI "PID eq IDNUMBER"
You can also just right click on the svchost processes in task manager, and select "Go to services", which will select all the services related to that certain process
I'll have to install vista again and try that out
*makes mental note to stop with this OS changing itch every 5 seconds*
Believe this only works in Vista.. XP you are using the command line/tasklist method.
Granted, the original Post mentioned he was running Vista and this will indeed work in Vista. But tasklist will work in most windows 2000 OS and above.
Oh yes, it's only in Vista. Sorry, forgot to mention that Anyway, thread starter (failurbydesign) is running Vista, so it should work
