First Service & First Service won

1

Martin is completely correct "First Service" is the percentage of first serves that were not a fault, and "First Service Won" is the percentage of points you've won on first serves that weren't faults.

For the record, the first statistic is pretty much completely useless in professional tennis. This article is about two years old, but it illustrates how little a difference there is in the upper echelon for first serve percentage - less than 1% difference between #1 and #100. Additionally, it should be noted that the "Second Serve Points Won" statistic does not count double faults as a point lost, as it's seen that there was no (valid) second serve, and the Faults statistic serves that purpose...

SOLUTION:

I got called in to help with this hellacious problem at one of our client locations, and from what I've read, it apparently affects both Vista and Windows 7 PCs. It took me a while to find the probable cause and the solution, so I hope you don't mind the high level of detail -- by this point, every one of us deserves it. :) They were running Windows Small Business Server 2003, and right after joining any Windows 7 PC to the domain and rebooting, the DHCP Client and Diagnostic Policy Service services would fail to start with the event log error "Access is Denied" . The inability to use DHCP was the most noticeable symptom, but there were some other strange things going on as well, such as User Account Control protection level changes not sticking. Wiping and reimaging the Windows 7 machines did not solve the problems, and the systems would bomb out again as soon as the workstation rejoined the domain. I immediately suspected Group Policy had something to do with...

I am trying to build several Windows services to do different things. For instance, I need Windows services that will:

Send a daily report via email Periodically cleanup some archived info every 30 minutes etc.

The tasks I need the windows services to do are distinct so I don't really like the idea of having them all in one service.

What I've got so far is a project in Visual Studio 2008. I've created a windows service, I've set up a timer on the OnStart event (it just writes to a text file every 5 seconds for testing purposes). I then added an Installer to the project and when I run InstallUtil.exe, everything works fine.

The problem comes in when I add a second windows service to the same project. I set up the OnStart code again, with the same logging info (slightly different so I can tell which service is writing to the log). With the second windows service, I changed the Main event in Program.cs from:

static void Main(string[] args) { ...

Windows Vista (codenamed Longhorn[7]) is an operating system by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs and media center PCs. Development was completed on 8 November 2006,[2] and over the following three months, it was released in stages to computer hardware and software manufacturers, business customers and retail channels. On 30 January 2007, it was released worldwide[3] and was made available for purchase and download from the Windows Marketplace.[8] The release of Windows Vista came more than five years after the introduction of its predecessor, Windows XP, the longest time span between successive releases of Microsoft Windows desktop operating systems. It was succeeded by Windows 7, which was released to manufacturing on 22 July 2009 and released worldwide for retail on 22 October 2009.

New features of Windows Vista include an updated graphical user interface and visual style dubbed Aero, a new search component...

How to Start, Stop, Restart, and Disable Services in Windows 10


A service is an application type that runs in the system background without a user interface and is similar to a UNIX daemon process. Services provide core operating system features, such as Web serving, event logging, file serving, printing, cryptography, and error reporting.

This tutorial will show you how to start, stop, restart, enable, and disable services in Windows 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

Note

If you stop, start, or restart a service, any dependent services are also affected. Starting a service does not automatically restart its dependent services.Changing the default service settings may prevent key services from running correctly. It is especially important to use caution when changing the Startup type setting of services that are configured to start automatically.Some services, such as Remote Procedure...

Introduction

Many people have asked for a “one-click” type of solution to Windows 7 Services. This page is my answer. Even though it takes more than just “one-click,” it will make things faster for you and assist in configuring your system for optimal performance.

Warning: Before you do anything, read EVERYTHING!

Notes for a Happier Computer and User

Do not use “msconfig” to disable services, type “services.msc” in the Run box instead! (why?) Before disabling any service, check out the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Services Information. All of these services are “Standard” with Windows 7 Service Pack 1. If you discover something other than these listed here running, another program installed them. After adjusting your service settings, reboot your computer. Before posting your question in the comments below, see if your question has been addressed in the FAQ!

Check dependencies.

Return to the Print Spooler Properties window as described above, if you closed it. Click the Dependencies tab and look at the top box, labeled "This service depends on the following system components."

[5]

Look up the status of each service listed in this panel:

Return to the Services window. If you closed it, open it again as described in the first step of this method. Find the name of one of the services you saw in the upper Dependencies pane, listed under the Name column. Confirm that the word "Started" is in the Status column for that file. Confirm that the word "Automatic" is in the Startup Type column for that file. If one of the services you looked up does not have these values, Stop and Start that service. You can do this with the icons in the Services window, or by double-clicking the service name and using the buttons in its Properties window. If the Stop and Start icons are greyed out, or if stopping and starting does not change the values...

A few months ago, I got the update to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 on my laptop. Since then every thing went fine and I was truly enjoying the Windows 8.1 with the “Windows Re-imagined” concept.

But yesterday when I went to check the Security Center, I came to know that the Windows Firewall service wasn’t running on my system. So I headed to the Local Services window by pressing running services.msc command. Here I found that only a few services were running. I tried to start the leftover services, but I wasn’t able to do so. I received the Access Is Denied error. This is the screenshot with one such service:

Due to this Access is denied error, I couldn’t start most of the local services and this messed up my system with warning and alerts. Initially, to fix it out, I did run the SFC /SCANNOW command to fix out any corrupted files associated with these services, but it didn’t made any differences in the situation. Then eventually, I came around this solution...

Building on the innovations brought by its predecessors, Windows 7 is the operating system that takes everything one step further. Microsoft released the successor to Vista in order to provide users worldwide with a completely new experience that takes reliability, compatibility, performance and security to a whole new level.

Several SKUs to match buyers' needs

Catering to the needs of both regular users and IT professionals, the operating system comes in several flavors, ranging from 'Starter' up to 'Ultimate'. The difference consists in the number and kind of tools that are available for each edition.

The list of new and changed characteristics is way larger, but a few important ones can be mentioned here. Windows 7 consolidates the features introduced by its predecessor and brings to the table a much improved boot performance, native support for VHD (virtual hard disk) images, a revamped taskbar with many enhancements.

Every version of Windows has shipped with a core set of system services that must run so that the system can perform basic operations. However, your organization may not necessarily need to have all the services running, and disabling unnecessary services can enhance performance and security. I put together a list of 13 services you can disable on your Windows 7 systems that will probably not negatively affect your business operations at all.

I say "probably" for a reason. Before you take drastic action, such as disabling a service on every PC in your organization, make sure that the service you're disabling is not actually in use. This article makes a couple of broad assumptions: that your company doesn't need to share Windows Media files and doesn't use Windows 7's HomeGroup features.

This is not a definitive list of services that can be disabled; these are just some obvious ones. Read carefully and make sure you test changes before deploying them across your...

Solution 3: Empty Event viewer log.

In some cases the svchost.exe high CPU (or high Memory) usage problem has to do with the large log files in Windows event viewer. So, another solution is to clear Event Viewer's log. To do that:

1. Simultaneously press Windows key + R to open run command box.

2. In run command box, type: eventvwr and press Enter.

3. At Event Viewer: Double-click to expand Windows Logs.

4. Right-click on Application and choose Clear Log.

5. Perform the same operation and clear the Security, Setup, and System log.

6. Restart your computer.

Solution 4: Troubleshoot Windows Updates problems.

In other computers, the svchost.exe high usage problem may occur when Windows searches for updates (in the background). In order to troubleshoot high CPU usage problems during Windows Update, perform the following steps.
