How can I shut down an NT service.  
I can identify the services running on an NT box.  I need to shut one down - do a few things - And then bring it back up again.  I need some ideas how to shut it down and then bring it up in my code.

See 'ControlService()'. Use 'SERVICE_CONTROL_STOP' to stop it and  'SERVICE_CONTROL_START' to restart it.
