Other than the unreliability of Windows and some services... I've seen
some, particularly if there were multiple services that were
interdependant that refused to restart manually, no matter what hoops I
jumped through. In this particular instance there were 3 services that
had to be started in a particular order, and even when restarting them
in that order via the servis management panel, the often wouldn't start.
Rebooting the computer was always an easier and faster fix.
