    Here's how to track down detailed information about any Svchost.exe process running in Windows 7/8.

    a) You can use the Tasklist command-line tool to learn which services are running in a Svchost.exe. Just run cmd (command prompt) and hit

    Tasklist /svc /fo list

    Scroll through the list and find what you need. It's not quite intuitive so you can use third party programs with gui. See below:

    b) You can use svchost viewer. Best utility. Note: to run this under XP you need .Net framework 2.0


    c) Svchost Process Analyzer is another app for that.


    d) And another app called Svchost lookup tool


    e) And it won't hurt if you use Process Explorer and System Explorer.

    It's never bad to keep your system under control, plus all these apps are portable no installation is required.
