Actually looked at three things... the third being the IconBar app
issue... since I have some nearly pure code for it.  It was coded
for ATL 2.0, but that's a pretty 'simple' windowing system (compared
to MFC, which has always put more roadblocks in my way than actually
accelerating development :(

My concept of a taskbar is some simple way to enumerate all services
installed vs. all services running.  Services installed is pretty
straightforward, simply parsing strstr of the services key for all
the Apache.exe string (don't care which directory, of course.)  And
enumerating the Win9x running servers is easy as well, simply use
FindWindow() with the service class and collect window names.  But
enumerating running NT services will always be trouble, and require
either opening each service and quering it's status, or enumerating
all running services (bleh.)  Neither is pretty.

It almost calls for a better way for Win/2000 folks, since that API
added a query arg of the load order group.  AFAIK, it has no effect
on anything but device drivers and boot services, but it would be
very handy for just this application, since it allows us to group
all running services for fast status queries.

Here's the patch... I'll drop the idea until Keith, OtherBill and/or
others pipe up some comment about it's worth.


btw... the arg list below is for the CreateService() call:
