Install as Service disables Manager?

    Two questions:
    1) what if any is the advantage to running as a Service?
    2) if there's an advantage, then what did I do wrong to lose the ability to run the Manager?

    What I did:
    File -> Disable Ext2Mgr Autostart (I figured this meant, for the Process)
    File -> Install Ext2Mgr as a Service (assuming the Service now runs instead of Process)

    Reboot.  The Ext3 partitions still display and work correctly in Windows Explorer.
    However, the Volume Manager has disappeared and I can't make it return.

    What I tried:
    Going to the Ext2 program directory and clicking directly on the executable;
    Looking in my System Tray for an Icon;
    Looking for an Icon in the Windows Control Panel.

    I had to reinstall to make the Volume Manager reappear, and am now staying with "Running as a Process."

    Please advise, many thanks.

    I'm having the same problem.
    I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and I've enabled the service, but now I can't run the manager anymore.
    Any suggestions?
