Is there a way natively with Windows to secure a specific service such that a
non-admin user can start/stop it but not any others (or have other admin
access on the system)?  I thought perhaps you could set an ACL on a service
but the Control Panel UI doesn't seem to provide for that.

If this is not doable by default, are there any open source or commercial
products that provide something like this?

Thanks in advance.
