Explanation (?):

The fax service service provides the ability to receive or send faxes. There is very little functionality for this service in Windows 2000 or especially in NT4. However, if you have fax programs that were designed for Windows NT4 or 2000 then it will most likely use this service. Since this service only activates when it is needed you should leave it set to manual. You can also safely set it to disabled if you don't use it.
