Svchostl.exe

Click the checkboxes to the left of each of the svchost.exe processes (or just those that you care about). Now, switch to the CPU tab:

From the Start Menu, type "Resource Monitor" and run it. It's literally "Service Host." You may have a dozen services or more running inside that process. There's many command line ways to figure this stuff out, like net start or sc query type= service or tasklist /svc But this post is about doing it the easy way You can see the PIDs for a running Service for the Services tab, but when a service goes insane, good luck nailing it down.

Which Service is Freaking Out? More complex is that you'll sometimes see multiple SvcHost.exe's in your TaskManager.
