What is services.exe?

Service Control Manager (SCM) is a special system process which starts, stops and interacts with Windows service processes. The SCM executable, Services.exe, runs as a Windows console program, and is launched by the Wininit process early during the system startup.

Overview

services.exe executes as a process under the SYSTEM account with extensive privileges (the system and the administrator accounts have the same file privileges) typically within the context of its parent wininit.exe (Windows Start-Up Application by Microsoft). This is the Service Service Control Manager for Windows wich is responsible for controlling most Windows services. This version is designed to run on Windows Vista and is compiled as a 32 bit program.
