"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can find out how many service you have installed by exporting the services list to a text file then opening this text file into Excel and see the row count.
Right-click services > Export list

They both display the same list of services. However, the column names are not consistent between the two: in Task Manager the "Description" column is the one that matches the "Name" column in services.msc
