Snort 2.1? Are you sure it's not 2.0.1? AFAIK 2.1 isn't out yet.

So which exact guide did you follow (I assume one of the winsnort.com ones, 
but which?)

Did you actually run snort -W and then snort -v -i (interface number) to 
test it out in command-line mode first before registering a service ?

What exact command line did you enter to register the snort service?

What do you get when you do a snort /SERVICES /SHOW? (make sure you're in 
the snort directory when you run this, as you do with any snort service
