  Windows 2000 and earlier: All processes are granted the SC_MANAGER_CONNECT,
  SC_MANAGER_ENUMERATE_SERVICE, and SC_MANAGER_QUERY_LOCK_STATUS access rights.

  Windows XP: Only authenticated users are granted the SC_MANAGER_CONNECT,
  SC_MANAGER_ENUMERATE_SERVICE,
  and SC_MANAGER_QUERY_LOCK_STATUS access rights.
}

{
  Do not use the service display name (as displayed in the services
  control panel applet.) You must use the real service name, as
  referenced in the registry under
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
