I haven't developed services [yet], but if they receive standard windows messages, maybe trapping WM_USERCHANGED is the way. just my $0.02

w Fox is right

The WM_USERCHANGED message is sent to all windows after the user has logged on or off. When the user logs on or off, the system updates the user-specific settings. The system sends this message immediately after updating the settings.

WM_USERCHANGED  
wParam = 0;       // not used, must be zero
lParam = 0;       // not used, must be zero

If you are using a Service App then catch it in your message loop..

other wise

through a TAppEvents control onto a form

and have some code like

case Msg.Msg of
  WM_USERCHANGED : // your code here
  // other stuff
 end;
