What can i know which Services depend on a AD user account?
in other words : Suppose there's a many services running on a server each service use a user account to run , many of them use the same account to run , so I need to specify an account  and know which service/services depend on it to run ?

open up your services.msc and look..
 look under logon as
and as I stated before no service should rely on an AD account to run.. they normally run under localsystem or NetworkService or LocalService
