Which service should I make mine dependant on?

I want to add a dependency to my service so that it only tries to start after most of the Windows services have started. Can anyone recommend such a service that is unlikely to have been disabled for security reasons on corporate sites. As my service needs the networking services up and running I want to make sure mine starts after these. This service may also be deployed in non-corporate environments so I’m looking for a suitable service that is unlikely to have been disabled by the end user.

"I would suggest the Windows Update service. It's very unlikely to have been disabled.

On Vista and Windows 7 it's even defined as ""Automatic (Delayed Start)"", so it will start well after all other services."
