Is there any chance of adding an option so that there is no pop-up msg when launching the program?

To me, if I did not want the program to run, I would not have launched it, so why the pop-up to continue?

If it does take more time to gather the info on some PCs, maybe a progress bar with a cancel button would do just as well.

Yea I hear you, but the reason i made the pop-up
is so you could quickly close it, if you accidentally click on the application.

If you don't want it, you can easily remove it, just
download the source code and change the text in "Form1_Load" to

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

and compile :P

Or download the include file here:

The same version as in releases, but with the change above.
Thanks for your post :)

I was wondering if it would be possible to have svchost viewer default to expanding the svchost tree so that one can see right away what is running under those tasks. This would save a person from having to expand each svchost entry. Not much info there when the tree is collapsed.
