Resolving PID to an application

By Spike

  1. I have a process running my PC that I know is normal in nature (SETIatHomeOldClient.exe). I've tried looking for it quickly in Explorer, but didn't find it. This got me to thinking that there must be a way of quickly resolving a PID to an application or a folder path, rather than a search through the entire system.

    I haven't found a way to do it though. Can anybody tell me if such a function exists? (WinXP Pro SP1)

    I think that kind of feature exists deep in the MMC darkness, but you can also see it simpler by downloading Process Explorer.

    Ah thankyou. I would have thought there would be an easy way of doing it from within windows! I for one would find it pretty darn useful at times!!

    I will try the download.
