i'm looking for freeware that can "run any program as a windows service" like FireDaemon.. can someone point me to the right url? preferably with a GUI & no "free" trials, please.. :)

Microsoft has released a tool for doing this, INSTSRV.EXE & Srvany.exe

No GUI, but it does work

I use NTWrapper.  The free version only allows you to run one program as a service.  It has the added bonus of automatically restarting the service if it is terminated.
