I understand that svchost.exe is a service wrapper that loads many 
different services (dll files) on WinXP. I can programmatically list the 
individual services that it has loaded with Python, but I cannot stop or 
start these individually services. Microsoft's documentation on this is 
next to non-existent.

Has anyone done this successfully with Python? Could anyone point me to 
some documentation?
