    I'm running SSM and now would like to ask a couple of questions. I have Windows XP and would like to know if Service Guard can be and/or should be run? Also I haven't set up the registry watch. Service Guard isn't needed for Registry watching ,is it? Thank you.

    Hi. I ran service guard for a while, but the last time I installed SSM, I forgot to run it. I'm not sure it's all that necessary, and it is not needed for registry watch.
    My suggestion is to run all the plugins and see if you have any problems. I seem to be doing ok with all of them enabled right now.

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier.

    As best as I can tell it just watches the services that start on bootup and informs you if one of them get terminated.
    There are several services in the NT type OSs that start and run in the background that you aren't even aware of unless you check the running processes.
    Some programs like KAV or Diskeeper run as a service at startup also, so some people might like to monitor all these services against termination.
