I introduced the service with version 2.1, because there is no other way to be able to use a tool like nHancer in Vista without having to start it with "Run as Administrator" (or turning off UAC).
The service does nothing else but relay all nHancer actions which require admin rights (writing into the registry and changing nvapps.xml). When nHancer isn't running, the service does nothing at all.
The only disadvantage of the service is that the boot up time might increase slightly (less than a second). The additional memory consumption is usually of no concern, since the OS swapps inactive applications out of physical memory anyway.
