    Hi there.
    I have searched the forum but couldn't find anything that would involve services that are on the PC, do they present a security risk.
    I am running a XP and with "tasklist /svc" command in the command prompt these are the services that came up.
    Does anyone know if they represent any threat, which one (if any)?


    System Idle Process..........N/A
    System...........................N/A
    smss.exe.........................N/A
    csrss.exe .......................N/A
    winlogon.exe....................N/A
    services.exe....................Eventlog, PlugPlay
    lsass.exe....................PolicyAgent, ProtectedStorage, SamSs
    svchost.exe....................DcomLaunch
    svchost.exe....................RpcSs
    svchost.exe....................AudioSrv, CryptSvc, Dhcp, dmserver,
    ........................................EventSystem, Netman, Nla, RasMan,
    ........................................SENS, ShellHWDetection, TapiSrv, winmgmt
    uphclean.exe....................UPHClean
    explorer.exe....................N/A
    svchost.exe ....................stisvc
    notepad.exe....................N/A
    tasklist.exe ....................N/A
    wmiprvse.exe....................N/A


    p.s. I run windows updates manually, so update service isn't here

    Thanks

    The BlackViper site is for advanced users only as it generally prescribes turning Windows services on and/or off, this is not a good reference point for someone looking for an issue with a particular service that may be a problem. :shifty:
