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 installed on Windows 8 and is compiled as a 32 bit program.
