PID identification

A while back I was having trouble with a service that was hogging large amounts of memory.  Somebody told me about a DOS command that showed the PID number and exactly what service it corresponded to.  I can't remember what the command was, does anyone know?

Thanks.

That would be a simple
tasklist /svc
You can filter the output to not show non-services:
tasklist /svc | find /i /v "N/A"
If you're not using an English version, replace "N/A" with the corresponding message for non-services in the "Services" column.

I'm not aware of a DOS command, but googling "Windows PID application" led me to this page
http://windows-process-pid.qarchive.org/

There are several other results, as well.

Also you can download a graphic tool to see what's running on, and have the possibility to kill the process. See:

Hope helps.
