You can simply do it using Windows Task scheduler.Follow thw below steps
1. Goto the Scheduled Tasks. Double click on Add Scheduled Task.
2. A wizard will open up. Use it to schedule a job as usual.
3. Once the schedule is added, right click on it and goto properties.
4. In the Task tab, in the Run area provide the below command      net start "<windows service name>"
5. Click on OKIf you want to schedule for stoping a service use      net stop "<windows service name>"
for restarting      
net restart "<windows service name>"

Is the computer restarted regularly, or is it a machine that is left on all the time.

If it is restarted regularly, simply set the service for an automatic Start.

In the OnStart event, check for date you have saved somewhere. If the date is one month old or more, run the service and update the saved date.

If the date is less than one month, stop the service.

I would do it like this.

1. add a timer to your service class with an interval of a day
2. when the timer elapses,
2.1 turn the timer off
2.2 see if today is equal to 1.
2.3 if not return out of the method
2.3 if it is - do your processing
2.4 when you have finished processing turn the timer back on

     
        private Timer timer;

        public void Start()
        {
            timer = new Timer(86400000);
            timer.Elapsed += TimerElapsed;
            timer.Enabled = true;
        }
        
        private void TimerElapsed(object sender, ElapsedEventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                timer.Enabled = false;
                var now = DateTime.Now;

                if (now.Day != 1)
                {
                    return;
                }

                //else do you processing

               timer.Enabled = true;

Open in new window
