I have one program (a web stats generator) that runs as a service that doesn't
always die, but just hangs or stops responding. When you look at the service
in control panel | services, it says it's running so this wouldn't work for me.

Here's what I use. I make a simple batch file like:
net stop service1
net start service1

Then use the schedule service to run it as needed. Since I generate all stats
late at night, I just run it 5 minutes before the stats program is scheduled to

You can get slepp.exe from our FTP site and use a script like this:
net start service1
net start service2
sleep 600
goto top
then you can run the script with srvany or just in the foreground. If
service is running, the "net start" will just return that (otherwise it
start the sevice).
