Determine what Services are running in Windows XP

When you bring up the Task Manager you’ll see an entry for Services and the amount of memory consumed. However this one listing is actually all the Services combined into a single entry. As you can see I have them trimmed down to only the Services needed for this machine.

To view the complete list:

From a command prompt: Start | Run (type) cmd (click Ok)

(type) tasklist /svc (press Enter)(XP Pro only)

You will see all the Services running in process.

To save the onscreen info:

  • Right-click and select: Select All
  • Right-click again and select: Mark
  • Open Notepad and Paste the info
  • File – Save As: tasklist.txt
  • (type) “tasklist /svc >tasklist.txt” (no quotes)
