At what location in the Microsoft Windows Registry will you find the currently running service definitions?

EXPLANATION

The HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services registry tree stores information about each service on the system. Each driver has a key of the form HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DriverName. The PnP manager passes this path of a driver in the RegistryPath parameter when it calls the driver's DriverEntryroutine. A driver can store global driver-defined data under its key in the Services tree. Information that is stored under this key is available to the driver during its initialization.
