Hallo Friends

I need some good sites for a friend to analyze process names, dll and sys files.
It will be very helpful when you can see where the process path is like in bleepingcomputer startups or systemlookup.

I told him this sites below.
Do you know some trustable sites like:
WinPatrol PLUS Database

to find unknown processes? He would also pay for something like WinPatrol PLUS. I need really good sites, which are really up to date.

Kind Regards,

Process explorer is probably the best of the bunch.  Also you may wish to check out virustotal.com for specific files. (you can upload a suspect file for evaluation by a plethora of virus recognition engines)

he knows this sites already:
processlibrary, liutilities, file.net, PC Pitstop Process Library, fileresearchcenter.com & neuber.com and they will not help him much.

tasklist will not help him too...
he need site with process path infos...

sysinfo is great, i need sites like this. once i found this site but didn't know the link.

I’m also working with Process Explorer & Process Monitor. But he will not work before the customer. So i think Sysinternals will not help him a lot.
He told me that he needs Databases. Do you know some? Because simply google is not a solution for him.

nice to see you here. how are you? see my comments to aboo_s .

If you mean that your friend want to Analyze those threads like debug them or alter them,
if this is what you mean by Analyze, well then you will need tools like:

Resource Explorer

Look them up in google.

Not exactly what you asked for, but I have found this site helpful in figuring out what DLL files belong to:
