What is services.exe?

services.exe is a part of the Microsoft Windows Operating System and manages the operation of starting and stopping services.
This process also deals with the automatic starting of services during the computer boot-up and the stopping of services during shut-down.

This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Importance of services.exe

services.exe is a very important executable file associated with the Windows Operating System. It runs in the background and "services" other applications that are needed to run during startup and shutdown. It also services those programs installed on your computer that run automatically or as needed.

Function of services.exe

When you boot your computer, services.exe initially calls on those Windows applications needed to run your computer. After which, it calls on third-party applications you've authorized to run during startup to load. These are the icons you see on the bottom right of your screen in the system tray. The reverse happens during shutdown. Services.exe first kills off the applications currently running on your computer then it terminates Windows applications, which shuts down your computer.


Services.exe is a file located at C:\Windows\system32. If another services.exe is found elsewhere in the computer, it is most probably malicious.

This process is considered safe. It is unlikely to pose any harm to your system.

This process is considered to be CPU intensive. Without proper management, CPU intensive processes can manipulate system resources and slows down computer.
