How to Disable/Enable Windows Services (Local)


On Microsoft Windows operating systems, a Windows service is a long-running executable that performs specific functions and it is
designed not to require user intervention. Windows services can be configured to start when the operating system is booted and run in
the background as long as Windows is running, or they can be started manually when required. They are similar in concept to a Unix
daemon. Many appear in the processes list in the Windows Task Manager, most often with a username of SYSTEM, LOCAL SERVICE
or NETWORK SERVICE, though not all processes with the SYSTEM username are services. The remaining services run through

svchost.exe as DLLs loaded into memory.
