I am wondering if a tool exists that can tell me which service is causing services.exe to use all CPU time. Basically a Task Manager for services.exe.

Does anybody know of such a tool.

You don't say what version of Windows you're running but in Windows 7 the Resource Monitor's CPU tab will do the trick.

Thanks. This is exactly what I needed. – Christian Madsen Mar 5 '11 at 20:23

Use Process Explorer. See details in this answer to a related question.

I tried that and process explorer does show me that services.exe uses 50% (dual core system). But it does not show which exact service that has gone crazy (services.exe runs multiple services inside its process). – Christian Madsen Aug 17 '10 at 13:14
Or did I overlook something? – Christian Madsen Aug 18 '10 at 5:26
