NT Service Manager

Maybe sometimes someone wants to control services. If he or she is administrator, I thing this program may be helpful. Things to try:
1. Double-click list item to see dependencies.
2. Press F1 to see a-quite-not-usual-about-box.
3. Control services via start/stop/pause down-left buttons.
4. Right-click on list to customize appearance..
5. Click on list header to sort items. Multiple sort in future.
6. Look in source code if you found something.

You will easily recognise HTML static (from Codeguru) and some other burrowed stuff...

Tips for:
- services control (start/stop/continue) over Intranet;
- establish if an user is NT Administrator;
- 'relief' button
and more.

Establish if an user is NT Administrator:

BOOL bIsAdmin = FALSE;

HANDLE hProcess, hAccessToken;
DWORD dwInfoBufferSize;
PSID psidAdministrators;
UINT uCount;

hProcess = GetCurrentProcess();
if(!OpenProcessToken(hProcess, TOKEN_READ, &hAccessToken))
return FALSE;

bIsAdmin = GetTokenInformation(hAccessToken, TokenGroups, InfoBuffer, INFOBUFFERSIZE, &dwInfoBufferSize);

return FALSE;

if(!AllocateAndInitializeSid(&siaNTAuthority, 2, SECURITY_BUILTIN_DOMAIN_RID, DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_ADMINS,
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, &psidAdministrators))
return FALSE;

bIsAdmin = FALSE;
for(uCount = 0; uCount < ptgGroups->GroupCount; uCount++)
if(EqualSid(psidAdministrators, ptgGroups->Groups[uCount].Sid))
bIsAdmin = TRUE;

return bIsAdmin;
