    Very nice program :thumb: Avast hates it though, it wouldn't shut up and kept forcing it into the sandbox even though it's a clean program.

    I set up software restriction policies to block svchost.exe from running from anywhere but the system folder(s) (2 on 64 bit) so I have a lot less worries about a rogue copy running from a temp folder for example. It is still handy to see what the legitimate copies are running.

    Nice program, I found a couple more services I could disable. Very useful.
