F@H question & news

Do services start before someone logs on? The machines @ Habitat For Humanity are on a lot of the time, but people haven't always logged into them... Since I just installed Firedaemon and F@H as a service on all of them, the production should go up (dun know if anyone was closing it before, but no one that uses these machines, short of me, is computer literate enough to shut down firedaemon and/or the service) but I was wondering if it runs before anyone logs on...

Anyhow, news:

So yeah, I reinstalled F@H as a service on all their computers... I also installed it on the server... if the server doesn't cough up any hairballs in the next week because of it, that'll be one more computer folding under SVHFH, which brings their total to:
5x Athlon XP 1800+

    The service will not start until someone logs on, however, if they log in, and log off later, it will stay on. :/

    Services start with windows. So firedaemon will start FAH when its at the log in screen.

    You can always ctrl+alt+del to check CPU% and running files unless its a 3.x system.
