Managing Service Permissions

To view or manipulate services, you must have appropriate access to the SCM. Permissions to the SCM cannot be altered, although permissions over specific services can be modified. Tables 9-1 and 9-2 list the default permissions for the SCM in Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP, respectively. These services are not exposed in a human-readable format in the registry.
