    Description

      Hi,

      I would like to suggest a way to monitor if a service is running on Windows that shouldn't be running. Any running service can be a security issue, so it should not be running if it is not needed.

      For example, there was a known security problem with the "spooler" service, so that is an example of why any service that is not needed should be disabled (in this case, of course, a print server is an exception).
      It usually doesn't make sense to have the "SharedAccess" service (for sharing an internet connection with other computers) running on a server.

      I have found with the {$SERVICE.NAME.NOT_MATCHES} Macro to disable monitoring of services that are not needed, but in my opinion they should be monitored, but there should be a problem when they are run.
      I tried myself to extend the template accordingly and had problems with that, but I think it is also useful for all other users of Zabbix.
