Windows System Or Service Failures

System and Services failures are interesting events that may need to be investigated. Service operations normally do not fail. If a service fails, then it may be of concern and should be reviewed by an administrator. If a Windows service continues to fail repeatedly on the same machines, then this may indicate that an attacker is targeting a service.
