services.exe

Flie Name: services.exe Product:
Author: Microsoft Corporation Security Rating:

The services.exe process belongs to the Services Control Manager of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. It is used on Windows 2000/XP and is responsible for the starting, stopping and interacting with the system service. It can also change the services default settings from automatic to manual startup during the computers boot-up. It also hosts several important services that control functions such as event logging and Plug and Play functionality.

Other instance of services.exe:

There are viruses and trojans that use the same name as services.exe. In most cases, the bogus services.exe might be present in your Windows folder, and added to the RUN keys so that the Malware loads at every startup.

Recommendation:

The services.exe process is an essential part of Windows and required for Windows to work properly. It should never be disabled.

Used with Microsoft Office, seems to be clear from viruses, but i personally havn't scanned the file or restarted my system after the executable 'services.exe' turned up on my computer. This is probably not a virus, and shouldn't harm your computer.  More information

I wish I could credit the site but I found that Comodo Commander was the cause. I uninstalled it and this glut disappeared. Link below may help or be the one I found but you can make your decisions with at least a little input.  More information

When I start windows, this hogs all of my resources for about 5 minutes taking mega-gobs of memory. Makes my machine very slow and even non responsive during that time. You can watch it decrease in memory size during this period (well over a gig, falling down to 11 megs). It keeps my hard drive very busy during this time, too. Probably necessary, but certainly an annoyance.
