Description:Stores security information for local user accounts.
This service is responsible for making the connection to the SAM-database (Contains available user-accounts and groups). The SAM-database can either be placed in the local registry or in the Active Directory (If available). When the service has made the connection it announces to the system that the SAM-database is available, so other services can start accessing the SAM-database.
