    I've got some concerns about a possible worm on my computer because it's been a bit sluggish lately AND my animated mouse pointer keeps reverting back to a default pointer.
    So, I was wondering how to find out what each of my svchost.exe files are. I don't have that program..??what's the name of it?....Tasklist?....to view them. I'm running Win XP SP2. I've already scanned with updated definitions: HJT, Adaware SE, Spybot S&D, Spysweeper, etc. I've also checked my startup list in msconfig. Everything seems fine except that curious little svchost.exe file that's running in my Task Manger. It's using a large amount of memory...like 22,000+ and 13,000+ K's. Can anyone lend a suggestion?? Thanks so much for helping.
