Many times we come across installation errors and find that there is a service running and hence you cannot install a software. We know how to uninstall a software but many of us do not know how to remove a service which is not not running or its seen in services even after uninstalling a software.
There are two (2) ways to remove a service.
- Using Command Line
- Run cmd
- Sc stop ServiceName
- Sc delete ServiceName
- Edit Services File
- Go to the location where services file is located – C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc
- Edit services file and remove unwanted service
That’s it. it is very simple.
Happy Windows Administration
