Discovered a new feature of Windows today.

If you have a service that seems to be playing up, then note down the process ID in the task manager and run the following:

tasklist /svc

Unfortunately, you can have multiple services sharing the one svchost.exe process. If that's the case, then you need to split them off to their own process by doing the following:

sc config <servicename> type=own

You can later make them share the same svchost.exe process by running:

sc config <servicename> type=share
