comment Limit services hosted by one svchost.exe under Windows XP?
I'm aware that running more hosts will actually reduce performance slightly since those services can no longer share resources. I want to be able to dynamically reduce the priority of processes that are using a lot of CPU without affecting nearly all the services at once, but I was also trying to find a balance between that and having every service use its own process. For a one-time analysis I would use the script from serverfault.com/questions/12278 to set them all to "own" and set them all back to shared when I found the problem, but I'm looking for something more dynamic.

I saw a reference to that path in a MS KB article (#314056), but I got the impression that I can't just change those values. For example, the netsvcs group has server, workstation, etc., in it, and if you look at the service descriptors for those services in System\CurrentControlSet\Services, they reference netsvcs in their ImagePath setting. Is it safe to re-arrange the groups as long as I update the ImagePath for all the services that are moved?

comment Where does task scheduler store its files in windows server 2008?
They probably moved it to a "shell folder". Is there an entry for it in the registry path \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders (or "User Shell Folders") under local machine or current user? Have you tried searching your drive for .job files?
