    I was going through the events on our 2008 data server after it rebooted unexpectedly. One of the events referenced a service I’ve not seen before:

    Log Name:      System
    Source:        Service Control Manager
    Date:          03/12/2018 10:44:46
    Event ID:      7036
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Information
    Keywords:      Classic
    User:          N/A
    Computer:      Orion.htlincs.local
    The FieldMILIService service entered the running state.

    This is followed by ‘… entered the stopped state’ one second later.

    I am getting no results from a web search. I have been through all the services listed in services.msc and looked at ‘Properties > General tab > Service name’ but nothing matches. We have Sophos installed and nothing apart from the usual PUA’s (PSKill etc., from SysInternals) has been detected.  Enumerating all services via PowerShell: Get-WmiObject win32_service | Select Name, DisplayName, State, StartMode | Sort State, Name does not list this service.

    Has anyone come across this service before?

    Just searched through the System log and it has cropped up before – during each restart (I usually filter out 7036 events when scanning the logs – whoops!).
