Is there a way to tell what svchost is acommodating?

  1. Svchost handles processes excecuted by dlls. Ok, fine. But some are good, some are bad, and some just randomly take up a ****load of memory. And all seem anonymous.

    Is there a way to find out which programs or processes are utilizing svchost? This would allow me to determine if I should terminate a suspicious instance, or give me general knowledge of what is going on in my system, rather than trusting that its a good process that is being acommodated, because if I terminate it and it is legitimate, bad things can happen, and have.

    Roy,
    Thanks for that... I didn*t know and that seems like a good MS resource you are pointing to. I bet BlackScarlet will make use of that as well.
