"tasklist.exe" is a command line tool that allows you to list tasks (actually search and view processes) that are running on your Windows 7 computer.

The best way to start the "tasklist.exe" is to run it in a command line window:

1. Enter "cmd.exe" in the Start button search box. Then click "cmd.exe" in the suggested match list. You will see a black window with a command prompt.

2. Enter "tasklist.exe /M file*" at the prompt to execute the "tasklist.exe" command. You will see a list of processes that are running with any "File*" modules:

C:\Users\fyicenter>tasklist.exe /M file*

Image Name                     PID Modules
========================= ======== ===========================
explorer.exe                  5836 FileSyncShell.dll
firefox.exe                   5160 FileSyncShell.dll
