Welcome to the Services Utility. This page contains most Windows services; their expected platforms, their default and desired startup types, and clicking on them gives you a very complete explanation of them. This utility contains a great amount of information for Windows services, and is able to be searched from the search box at the bottom. If you are unsure what services are or want more information on Windows services in general then please read my Windows Components guide on services. If you want to know the meaning of the columns and the color codings or if you want to know how to use the search box properly or for other explanations on how to use this page then please see the services legend / reference.
If you find any mistakes or if you think I should add additional information then please let me know. Visit the Contact Information page for instructions on contacting me.
"The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them." --Mark Twain
