Windows Services

“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.”
