Detect and Find Windows Services Running in the Background

Windows make use of lots of services to run properly, thus figuring out which process belong to Windows and which not, is a bit difficult task.

For every function in Windows there is a service linked to it which you can see for yourself by typing services.msc in the Run box. This will open the Services dialog that has a list of all the services used by Windows for its proper running.

But if you wish to check which all services are actually and currently running in your system then you can make use of this application called WinServiceManager.


1.    Small and free tool that require no installation.

2.    List all the Windows services running in the background enabling you to find out which service is legitimate and started by you and which one has started automatically.

3.    You can also remove or disable the service from the list and system.

4.    Displays more information like Company name, Running type etc.

By default the Windows Service Manager lists only the Non Windows services but checking the box at the left bottom reading “Show Windows services also” will also display the Windows services.

  3. There are cases where it shows up on your credit history record. We have had a lot more and much more folks inform me lately that they’ve studies for instance this showing on their credit history. It genuinely depends upon the lender. Since you tend not to owe this credit card debt any longer, if it does exhibit in your credit history record, it should exhibit that there is no unsecured debt owed. Surely get a duplicate of your credit history stories and make sure.!!!. you are able to get a totally free backup of all 3.
