Remove service in Windows

Usually when you uninstall something, associated service is removed with the software, but sometimes it lingers on.

In order to remove service manually you need to:

  • Click Start -> Run… -> type in "regedit"
  • Find the registry entry
  • Find the service you need to remove and delete the entry.
    Note: Check what files are used by the service as you might also want to remove them as well.
  • Restart Windows.
