Kill a service on domain computers using group policy

OK, the environ is a Windows Server 2003 domain.  All PCs are on the domain.  We use GP to control several things and push out our AV from a central server.

I need to kill a service on all of the PCs so I can update the AV program to a new service.  

Is there a way to kill a service running on everyone's PC using GP?

Thanks

Cliff

You can disable a service using GP, but then the workstation would need to reboot.

You could use netsvc which will remotely start and stop services, run it in a for-in-do command against a file of your workstation names to stop the service.

You can put a 'net stop <servicename>' in a batchfile and run it as logonscript using the GP.
