Remote Desktop "services" session RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone explain to me what a "services" session is as seen through the Remote Desktop Services Manager > processes tab? There is a column labled session and some entries are blank and some say Services.

    Specifically, there is a winlogon.exe process running in a Services session and I want to know if it is safe to kill that. Usually winlogon.exe is associated with logged on users. There is a problem where the logon sessions are getting stuck and I thought that maybe killing winlogon.exe would fix it. *I know it's never that simple.*

    -Windows Server 2008 R2 (remote and local)
