This Knowledge Script counts the Windows Services which meet the specified criteria, and raises an Event if the number exceeds the threshold. Services may be included or excluded from counting based on their start mode, i.e. Automatic, Manual or Disabled and/or their start state, i.e. Running, Stopped etc. These criteria may be used in any combination. For example, the KS can count all services, all Automatic services only, all Running services only, or all Manual and Running services.
