Hi guys,
This code was written by one of you gurus (rejoinder).
It presents all services on a local system and is brilliant.
Id like to modify the below code so that:

1) It allows you to input a computer name to check services against.
2) Does not present all services, but only the following:
a) Alerter
b) Workstation
c) Server

So basically, the hta as it is, Id like left unchanged, but instead of all services returned, only the 3 mentioned above, plus the ability to inputer a computer name to run this against.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

rejoinder,
Youre a gun.
Can I please just ask one more thing of your kind self?
Is there a way to first check if the machine is pingable, and:
a) if not ---> output "System down"
b) if up, do as normal.

This provides the prompt plus the ability to retry just in case the ping didn't make it back and you know the computer is on.

Thanks for the points!

The window size can be set in the "onload" sub.  Something like this could be used...

      intWidth = 800
      intHeight = 900
      Me.ResizeTo intWidth, intHeight
      Me.MoveTo ((Screen.Width / 2) - (intWidth / 2)),((Screen.Height / 2) - (intHeight / 2))

The key is the the "Me.ResizeTo intWidth, intHeight" line
