Stop "FTP-Publishing" service by shell or code

Please give me a hint on how to stop the described service by a shell command or VB Script or VB.
Basicly I had the problem, that a public FTP folder was used as "trash". My VB Program on the NT machine can detect these files and folders, but not every one I was able to "kill" or "RmDir" by VB code, because of mysterious path names (e.g. like 5 blanc spaces).
The next workaround I would like to try is to stop the "FTP-Publishing" service by code/script/whatever, next to formatting the drive on which the ftp root folder is located on and last to start the service again (by code or just reboot the system).
Note: My system must run completely unattended, even while formatting.  

Thanx for any of your hints!
