How To Remove Services

Sometimes programs fail to remove the services that they create when they are installed. Ive read that the majority of people think that they cant be removed. Wrong. They can be removed.

First thing you want to do is go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. There you will find the service you want to delete and right click and go to properties. You will highlight and copy the service name. DO NOT use the display name.

Then you will go to Start > Run > CMD

In the command prompt type sc delete [insert service name here]. To paste it you will have to right click and select paste. The CTRL + V doesnt work in a CMD prompt.

After it is complete reboot.
