Windows XP Services
PowerSuite 2011 has Now arrived...
This is the most powerful boot utility disk. When your computer crashes, cannot enter Windows, or you want to work under boot environment, this is your NO. 1 choice.
When you read through the lists of Windows services please do NOT
panic if you do not have some of these services listed on your own
PC. It may be that your computer manufacture "pre-installed" your
operating system and they choose not to have certain services
installed for you.
...or your version of Windows XP does not use a particular service!
Note - I have not listed 3rd party services, only those from Microsoft.
Simply put a "service" can be described as a software application that runs continuously in the background while your computer is on.
BUT isn't that what any software application does on a PC?
Well yes and no.
The main difference with a service is that they load into memory at boot time and start running whether or not anyone logs into the computer.
Windows has numerous services that run in the background and they provide basic functions to the system such as: connectivity to a network, printer support, access to visual themes and USB connectivity to name but a few.
There is also a hierarchy amongst services, by that I mean not all services were created equal. Some services are needed as the PC boots up and some are only called upon when their functionality is required, (the later is done with no direct contact with the user).
exactly would you want to know about these services?
