a little help please

New to the experts exchange, please forgive my ignorance.  I was looking at the response to question Q_24494363 by Lee025 and solved by rejoinder - HTA with VBScript sot stop/start windows services.

This is what I am looking for but - I want to only look up one (1) service and not all of the services.  I am not proficient enough in vbscript to know what to change.  Can someone please let me know what/how to change the script to only look for a single instance of a service?

Thank you,

Hi, all you will need to change is this line:
    Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")

Open in new window


to this:
    Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name='spooler'")

Open in new window


where 'spooler' is the name of the service you want to check.

Regards,

Rob.
