    How do I get rid of a service...

    I have a program that installs a service. Somehow the program stopped working and gives me a message that it can't communicate with its service. I checked in services and it's running OK. So, I decided to uninstall the program and re-install... However, after uninstalling the program, the service is still there and running...

    I would like to remove it and start from scratch... Is the only way to go in the registry and delete the appropriate key? I didn't see a way to uninstall or remove services otherwise.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ModelServerWinServiceP

    Thx, --ch

    OK, that worked perfectly, thank you very much Shawn! Now I will have to see if a re-install will fix the problem. --ch

    Well, that didn't help... Re-installing ends up with the same symptoms... The program says it can't communicate with the service, but the service is running. It works on two other computers... --ch

    You might check with that program's website to see if they may have a update or workaround available for that issue.
