Most people know of the Windows Task-manager GUI application. There are many times when it is better to use a CLI (command line interface). One such example would be where a script tests what is running.
The command “tasklist” is a Windows command that allows just this.
Just like its GUI cousin, you can also list services using this tool. The “/svc” option for instance displays the services hosted in each process.
Knowing what you are running is the first part of stopping malware.
