Some of us who are computer geeks, always wanted to control the services running inside the operating system. What are the services running, what is there state, How to change the state of the services manually and the effects that would happen after the state of a service is changed. I have got an application named Turbo Services Manager that will help you in controlling the services in your computer in a much better way.
Turbo Services Manager is much better than the Windows Services dialog as it displays all the dependencies regarding a service i.e. its parent and its child services. by using Turbo Services Manager you can save the state of the services, doing this you can use different configurations for different types of work environment. The best feature of the application is that service configurations are stored in the XML files. These XML files are loaded by the service managers when required, a test load feature is also available which tell you what are the changes that would happen if the files are loaded. You can change the service state and the startup state using the options available in the icon bar of the tool. It can also be used to display the kernel services. It also groups the services based on the State and Start up type.
The is the first screen that will open up when the software is run for the first time after downloading. It doesn’t need to be installed it runs straightaway. The software has a very Extensive toolbar menu containing several option which are discussed below. There is a icon bar that contains a lot of icons and each icon has a specific functionality like the circles are used to assign different states to the services. To the right of circles is a group of three icons which are a combination of two circles, these icons are used to group the services. Then to the right of these icons there are three notepad icons which are used to show the parent and child services of a selected service. also to the left of circles there is a group of five icons in which is used to Start, Pause, Resume, Stop and Uninstall a service. To the left of these five icons there is a group of three windows icons which are used to categorize the processes into Windows and Kernel processes.
This is the Start Menu which contains Save, Load and Test Load options.
