    The last couple of days I would notice the computer slowing down. When I opened Task Manager Svchost.exe was between 78 and 80 %. If I reboot it goes back to normal. What can be doing this? I know there is several svchost.exe's in the task manager and I don't know how to tell what the problem could be.

    There is a utility program at the link you could try.

    Tasklist

    Ron ,thank you for the reply. I went to the page you posted. Because I have XP Home I downloaded Tasklist. I have it as an exe. in my documents. What do I do with it now?

    You can double click what is running and it will give a description of the process.
    (Within Process Explorer)

    Thank you Ron. That Process Explorer is somethig else. I wish that I knew everything that it will let you see. It is hard to believe that someone would develop a program like that and make it freeware.

    It is a nifty utility to have around.
