Hi SJISIT,

Why don't you just stop the service and set the startup option to disabled?

Run Regedit or regedt32.
Find the registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services Find the service there and delete it.
You may wish to look at the keys and see what files the service was using and perhaps delete them also.
you will have to reboot for this to take.

Do it through the command line tool sc.exe (default in XP/W2k3):
sc delete <TheServiceName>
This informs the SCM properly of the deletion and will handle the deletion correctly even if the registry key in question might still be in use by the SCM (the service will then be "marked for deletion" and removed during the next reboot of the machine).
