Installed Services in System Registry
This section describes installed services stored in the system registry. A tutorial example is provided on how to use 'regedit.exe' to view the registry area where services are stored - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\.
Now we are ready to review main elements related to system services one by one.
The first one I want to look is the system registry area where installed services are stored.
1. Click Start, click Run, type "regedit.exe", and then click OK.
2. Open "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder in the Registry Editor.
3. Open "SYSTEM", "CurrentControlSet", and "Services" sub folders.
4. You will see a list of all services installed on the system.
This list includes two types of services: Application Program Services and Device Driver Services.
If you are very experienced with system registry and service management,
you can create, modify and delete any installed services with "regedit.exe".
