Ganesh,

If the method you want to periodically run needs to run very frequently then a service might be a good idea, however if all you need is for it to run occassionally a scheduled execution might make more sense.

Although I have not worked with windows ervices it seems to be that they should be reserved for such applications that have a more "real-time" demand or applications that need to be called by other things. However, Imar has written services so he's probably a better guy to ask (and listen to).
