One more thing i would like to add here for the difference between sp_who and sp_who2
sp_who2 gives user more comprehensive data. The columns shown in the sp_who2 command are :

SPID, Status, Login, HostName, BlkBy, DBName, Command, CPUTime, DiskIO, LastBatch, ProgramName, SPID, REQUESTID.

Thanks in advance.
