You can dump all services that are running on your Windows 8 system using the "sc query type= service" command as shown below:

C:\Users\fyicenter>sc query type= service

SERVICE_NAME: AeLookupSvc
DISPLAY_NAME: Application Experience
        TYPE               : 20  WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS  
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING 
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
