    Troubleshooting a service

    I've been trying to track down an issue with my computer for almost 2 hours now. I'm not sure why but there is a service that keeps hanging my computer. There is still some functionality. I can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and restart my computer. And I can move my mouse around But there is still something causing the normal desktop to not respond to actions. I went into safe mode and switched the configuration to the diagnostic option which only loads essential services. This works.

    But I have no idea what service is the cause of the problem. Does any one have a good way of troubleshooting what service may be the issue? I have already tried turning of themes, and that didn't help.

    I am running Windows 7 RC by the way.

    Also, it's not possible for me to look at the running services without my computer hanging.

    Download Windows Process Explorer (procexp.exe) you can view your running processes. Great trouble shooting utility.

    Did you reboot? Run anti malware and virus scans? What OS are you running?

    yes rebooted... ran virus scan, ran anti spyware... cant remember what the name of my spyware is... XP on my desktop. I also tried restoring as far back as my last reformat but the issue is still there.

    How do you feel about reformatting?

    BTW, iedw.exe is the IE crash program. Not spyware.
