How do I copy the Processes list out of Task Manager

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

Win XP Home BTW.

Read through a whole bunch of threads here and elsewhere but couldn't find
the answer to this one, mostly because everyone seems to be asking about
malware and browser hijacks.

Been using MS products since MS Flight Simulator on an Atari 800. I speak
BSD, C++, .NET and several other languages but I can't figure out how to do
this. No, I don't want to read a giant post about how to get rid of browser
hijackings in hopes of finding a reference on how to do this (Windows Update
+ SP2 + HiJack This (free) + AdAware (free) + good virus scan works well ...
for Heaven's sake people UPDATE EACH PROGRAM -> DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET
[UNPLUG THE PHONE CORD IF YOU HAVE TO] -> THEN RUN THE PROGRAM).

So, is there a way to Copy the list of running Processes in Win XP Home
Edition? The best advice I can find is max the window, then Prt Scr and
paste it. Come on, I don't want a picture of the processes, I just want to be
able to paste the list :-)

PS On the subject of Browser HiJacks... the latest thing seems to be new 900
services which let 'you' (or the jackass who has hijacked your PC) charge up
calls without having to dial. So, just because your computer isn't dialing a
900 number doesn't mean you aren't vulnerable. The best defense seems to be
calling your phone company and disabling any toll service of this kind.

    If you have HijackThis. Open it.

    Config button | Misc Tools button |
    Generate StartupList log | Copy and paste:

    Running processes:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe

    Tasklist.exe does not come with XP Home, but it will work with Home. I used
    it when I had Home installed.

    Tasklist.exe available here:
    http://www.computerhope.com/download/winxp.htm

    Or...

    http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/

    Microsoft Windows XP - Tips & Fixes
    Click on:
    Tasklist.exe - Lists all processes & services (/Svc)

    Or...

    http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/utils/tasklist.exe


    Copy it to C:\WINDOWS\system32

    Start | Run | type: cmd | OK
    When Command window opens type:

    tasklist /svc

    Hit the Enter key.

    Also:
    tasklist /?

    Displays Help and usage.

    You can copy and paste from the cmd window like...

    C:\>tasklist /svc

    Image Name PID Services
    ========================= ======
    System Idle Process 0 N/A
    System 4 N/A
    smss.exe 304 N/A

    Was there a question in that drivel?


    msinfo32 /categories +SWEnvRunningTasks /report "%userprofile%\desktop\msinfort.txt"

    but if you want to know what files are loaded

    msinfo32 /categories +SWEnvLoadedModules /report "%userprofile%\desktop\msinfolm.txt"

    Type em in start run and watch a file magically appear on your desktop.
