Bad idea. The mechanism of Windows Services is not designed to show any UI: it is supposed to work when no users are logged in, so where to show it, to whom? Got the thought?

However, you can create a separate UI application communicating with your service via some kind of IPC (could be named pipes, sockets, etc.)
