    Hi,
    As far as I know, we could check services start and stop messages
    Within the Event Viewer (Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Event Viewer) on the System tab the Service Control Manager logs who started and stop each event.
    You can definitely just query the Event Viewer's "System" log to look for those events for your Service.
    a service starts/stops Event ID 7040 or 7036
    When you find that, the "User" listed in the details below is the user that has made that change.
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
    Carl
