The Windows Task Manager delivers a limited overview about the running processes. But if you want to know, which services is linked to which program, you need a tool like the Process Explorer from Microsoft’s Technet.
The free Process Explorer displays all running processes and all their connections. The tool enables you to quit, restart or change the priority of any application. Via “Properties” you can access information like CPU or memory workload and loaded DLL files.
