There was this program that I used to have that showed every running process and its root. However I cannot recall its name. So give me time to find it, maybe someone else will think of it before then.

This is the best tool I know of for looking at what each process is doing.
As far as rundll32, this is used by any application that needs to use executable dll code. This is the case for all of the control panel, the display properites, and in a lot of cases the applets that are in your taskbad as well.

Good luck
