Verifying the Status of Services

Services that fail or don’t start when they should can cause major problems on a server. To avoid this, set all important services to start automatically, disable any suspect services, and specify what actions to take if a service fails. To view the status of a service or change its options, launch Services (Services.msc) from the Administrative Tools menu.
