OK Brainiacs, what's the best way to delete a service?  I uninstalled a program that left a service, and in Administrative Tools - Services, you can only get the properties, start/stop/etc.  I want to make this service go away.....  :tellme:

Stop the service and then go to the registry and delete the key  @  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services key

You could also start CMD and type:
sc delete <service name>
Reboot the system

  Thanks Philb.  I knew about the service controller, just didn't want to use it unless I knew for sure.   :up:

If you want to do it allfrom the command line:

SC STOP <service name>
SC DELETE <service name>

Full description of SC is at http://www.microsoft...-us/sc.mspx?mfr=true

or use SC HELP command

You can also stop services with NET STOP <service name>

see NET HELP command for details or see http://technet.micro...ibrary/bb490949.aspx
