If you need to remove an unwanted service from your server / PC but there is no uninstall program, how do you do it?
Easy! Perform the following:
- Go to Administrative Tools and click on Services
- Find the Service you need to uninstall, right mouse click and choose Stop
- Close the Services box
- Open an admin command prompt
- Type in: sc delete <servicename> eg sc delete acmeservice
The idea is to run this command in the directory that the executable for the service resides else the program will not know where to find the service to remove.
