I'm using powershell to get a list of services from several computers to see which ones use the administrator to run.

So far I have:

Get-wmiobject win32_service | Select -Property startName, Name, systemname

But it seems to me that this would only cover 32-bit services. How do I get a complete list of services from the Get-wmiobject command in powershell?

this will still work on 64 and display those services - name just wasn't changed for compatibility reasons and works the same regardless of bitness
