Ola,

I installed some service I made myself somewhile ago. But i lost the Service.exe I used with installutil.exe to install it.
So how do I uninstall the service without the .exe I used to install it in the first place?

Regards

Open regedit
goto HKEY local machine, System, Current Control Set, Services. Find the key with the name of your service and delete it.
