services.exe is a legitimate file. This process is known as Services and Controller app and it is associated with Windows Operating System. It is developed by Microsoft Corporation. It is used to manage the operations of starting and stopping the services. It is commonly stored in C:\Windows\System32.  The malware programmers or cyber criminals write the different types of malicious programs and name it as services.exe to infect the software and hardware.

The type of malware programs varies and the mode of infection also varies. Any of the following can alert you if the system is infected.
If the internet connection fluctuation is high
If the system is redirected to some strange websites
If the services.exe file is taking more of your CPU memory
If the system performance is very low
If it invites the other malware to infect and damage the system and exploits the same to collect the user private informaton
If the system is getting some annoying popup ads
If the system freezes quiet often
To confirm that go to task manager by pressing the combination of keys ctrl+alt+del and go to the process tab  and right click on the services.exe and open the location, if the location is sub folder of  C:\Windows\System32  then the system is not affected by services.exe, if the location is somewhere else then the system is affected by services.exe malware.
