MORE INFORMATION

For additional information about how hotfix packages are named, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
816915 New Naming Schema for Microsoft Windows Hotfix Packages
A service is a program, a routine, or a process that performs a specific system function to support other programs, particularly at a low (close to the hardware) level. When services are provided over a network, they can be published in the Active Directory directory service, and this facilitates service-centric administration and usage. Some examples of services include the Security Accounts Manager service, the File Replication service, and the Routing and Remote Access service.

For more information about how to set permissions on services, click Start, click Help and Support, type services permissions in the Search box, click the Start searching arrow, and then click Permissions.
