Many software applications that run on Windows NT, 2000 or above run as windows services, running as background processes with no direct user interface and no logged-on user (e.g. as a server). They are typically started automatically and therefore are expected to stay running. If any of these important services should fail, many users and external services are immediately affected and so ensuring that these services are running continuously is a key requirement for most system administrators.
