Enhanced Windows service manager

Update 2020-03-25: Uploaded source code on GitHub.

Are you tired of manually starting and stopping several Windows services at once? Do you want to disable a bunch of Windows service without going through each one of them? Here, I present an enhanced Windows services manager that provides features missing from the builtin services snap-in of Microsoft Management Console. The application is written in Python and you can download the source code from here: Enhanced Windows services manager.

The application uses wxPython in order to provide a GUI. Also, it uses pywin32 in order to communicate with the Windows API. Both of these are requirements for executing the application. Also, it features the notion of protected services, which are not allowed to be manipulated. Starting, stopping or changing the start-up type of these services can result to operating system instability and/or boot failure.
