First off I apologise if this is a stupid question. I can't seem to find any reference to it in the forums. To me this can only mean one of two things. Either the resolution is extremely obvious and I'm the only one that has experienced a problem, or I'm useless and couldn't find any posts even though they do exist. Both of which are embarrassing enough that I should hang my head in shame.




i have a very simple script I use to see if a service is running or not. It works fine emailing me a reply with pretty much either a yes or a no. this is of course until I try to see if Eset Service is running.


I have been testing on machines that I know it is running on but always get a reply saying no it is not running.


What have i missed ? Is there a way to get the information i require ?


Please keep the answers basic as that is about the sum total of my abilities when it comes scripts.


Cheers in advance
