Hi, when I opened my Start menu and typed in some search terms for Services, I noticed there was the regular Services window which lets you control what services are opened on startup and such. There was also a services.exe which when I clicked did nothing. Nothing came up. Is this a virus? Why did nothing come up when I click it? Thankyou so much for your help

If the file is located in C:\Windows\System32, it's a legit Windows file.

Yeah, it's in there. Any idea why nothing happens when I click on it?

Many Windows .exe files won't do anything, when double clicked.
They're simply not designed to be used that way.
They'll be executed by Windows itself.
