hi

you can try right clicking the particular service and giving refresh or try with properties of the service, by going to services window. i.e.,
Run-> services.msc

I think restarting will be the good option if nothing works out also you can set that service to run automatically in services window. by going to the properties of the service.

I would check the executable that the service runs and kill it from taskmanager. If the service runs under svchost, you can use tasklist /svc in cmd to check which svchost it's running under. If there are multiple services running under the svchost that your service's running under, I'd be careful in killing that process.

Hi  Aamsoh,
Please try using the SC command to query the status of the Service and then try using SC command with the Stop parameter and stop the service incase the service is still running.
Also you can use the Tasklist to view the Service running and kill the associated PID.
Alternately please check the dependencies of the services in the Services console and determine if the status of any of the dependencies is causing the issues.

On Windows 2000, you'll want to use 'kill' which is in the Windows Server 2000 resource kit.
