Is there a system tray app out there that provides quick access for controlling system services? I'm thinking a popup menu that lists all services on the system and provides Start/Stop/Restart controls for each one.

Surely there's something like this out there? I'm aware of the services snap-in and controlling services from the command line, but something in the system tray would be more convenient for my purposes.

There is Seobiseu. Once it is installed it gives you pop-up menu with services you select. It has start, stop and restart.

Just what I'm looking for -- any change you can add a 'restart' option? –  arathorn Apr 15 '11 at 15:17
@arathorn It has restart option now. –  Josip Medved May 9 '11 at 22:11

Please read How do I recommend software for some tips as to how you should go about recommending software. At the very least you should provide a link and some additional information about the software. –  Mokubai Nov 11 '14 at 18:18
The previous poster with 37K reputation has posted a link and no one has complained. I saw his post and responded similarly. Furthermore the question is quite obvious. He is looking for a software and a link or name suffices. Any other software suggestion may become invalid too. –  wmac Nov 11 '14 at 18:36
