Service Names Are Different for Stop and Pause

When using the Services option in Control Panel, services may be identified differently in the Stop and Pause dialog boxes.

For example, in the Stop dialog box, the Server service is referred to as the "Server" service, but in the Pause dialog box, it is referred to as the "LanmanServer" service.

For the Stop dialog, Windows NT uses the display name of the service that is stored in the registry. For the Pause dialog, Windows NT will use the key name of the service from the registry. This behavior is by design.
