ServiWin

ServiWin is a nice utility from NirSoft that displays the Drivers and Services in your system. The reason I use it is the Services Applet in Control Panel has no search function. You just scroll down the list waiting for your eyes to adjust trying to read the names of the Services until you find the one you want.

With ServiWin just hit Control-f to search the services. The only thing Services Applet has that ServiWin doesn't is the ability to set the service to Automatic (delayed start) startup type. But that setting is rarely used. (I sent the author a feature request to add it. There may be some reason it's difficult to program or it would likely have already been there.)

Note that by default ServiWin comes up with the Drivers View active rather than Services. Just push the button on the Toolbar. It will remember it when closed.
