Try the basiv inventory table for services to see if it has the status column.

Great, I found the info I need, I run the query like this, I run the report, but sometime I found the startup is empty on some of user's machine, how can I capture those machine with query?

select distinct [guid] AS [_ItemGuid], as [Machine Name], vc.[user], vc.[ip address], vc.domain,

inv.[Description] as [Discription], inv.[startuptype] as [Startup Type]

from vcomputer vc

join inv_aex_ac_nt_services inv on inv._ResourceGuid = vc.guid

where inv.[startuptype] like '%manual%' and

inv.[description] like '%symantec pcanywhere host service%'
