Windows 7: How to relate a running service, to an entry in Services

How to relate a running service, to an entry in Services

Basically, I see a particular service running in Task Manager on the services tab. I'd like to find out what Service is starting it up. So I bring up the Services(Local) GUI where it last all the Services, including if they are Started, Startup Type and so on.

I would think the name of the running service would match up but many don't. I did an "export to .txt" But it doesn't really have the process name in there.

So basically, I see a service running, I'm trying to figure out what is starting it. I know where the .exe file is that is running, and trying to figure out what is starting it as a service.
