How to Delete a Windows Service

Uninstalling a program in Windows doesn’t always delete the services that it was using. There is no way to delete a service from the interface in the Windows administrative tools, but you can do this manually through the command prompt.
Open the command prompt by press the Windows key and R (or alternately opening the Start menu and selecting the Run option).
Type sc delete ServiceName and press enter. If the service has spaces in its name, enclose ServiceName in double quotes, i.e. “Weather Monitor”.
The service will then be deleted from Windows.
