If I click under this drop-down list I can now decide whether I want it to start manually, meaning I have to come in to the Services desktop app and start the service whenever I want to use it or I can set it to automatic, in which case it'll automatically be started every time the system boots. That's what I want to do. I use this service frequently enough that I want it loaded all the time on the system.So I'm going to hit Apply. Notice that when I did that the start button down here became enabled.That's because it's no longer disabled, it's now enabled but it has not started. It won't start automatically until the next time the system boots, so at this point I have a choice of two different things I could do. One would be just restart the system in which case the SonicWALL NetExtender service would be automatically started or if I don't want to go to all that trouble I can just click the Start button. If I do that wait just a second. The service will start. Notice now the status has changed from stopped to running. So at this point I can now use my net extender client to establish a VPN connection. If for some reason I needed to stop the service or restart it I could come down here and hit stop.Notice that the status of the service changed from running to stopped and I can also start it again.There's also a link provided right up over here that allows you to restart the service as well which basically does the same thing, it just runs the stop command then it runs the start command. So that's how you troubleshoot services on a Windows system. Before we end I want to show you that you can manage services also in Task Manager. Using Task Manager 4:20-6:03 You can't do nearly as much in Task Manager as you can in the Services desktop app. But it still can be a useful tool. You see that when we go to the Services tab in Task Manager that all of the same services we just looked at are listed here as well. For example, here's my SonicWALL NetExtender service and here is its current status, it's running. One thing that is displayed in Task Manager that is not in the services desktop app is the process ID number that's associated with this service. Within Task Manager I can right-click on the service and if I do I can perform some basic management taskssuch as restarting the service, stopping it or starting it. Notice that it went through a restart process and as a result its PID number changed as the process exited and started up again and I right-click again we can also go to details, in which case the process associated with that service is highlighted and I can see information about that process

right hereand I can manage this process just like I would any other process running on the system such as one started, one would run Notepad. Now, be aware that you can use the system configuration tool to also manage services on the system. Now once again, what you can do in system configuration which as you saw we launched by running the msconfig.exe utility. You can enable or disable particular services at startup in this interface.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
