In Windows 2000 the majority of applications are considered a service and can be stopped.

Therefore to stop a service:

1. From the Start menu, point to Programs and Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.

2. In the Computer Management console, click Services and Applications.

3. Under Services and Applications, double-click Services.

4. Right-click the name of a service, and then click Stop.
