I have a windows service running with multiple threads. At some point of time if all the threads are stopped because of any reason how do I stop my service? And where should I write the code? Right now even if all the threads are stopped, service is still running.
protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
        {
            _thread = new Thread(ThreadCaller);
            _thread.Priority = ThreadPriority.Highest;
            _thread.Name = "Message Publlishing, Receiving and Processing Service";
            _thread.IsBackground = true;
            _thread.Start();
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Stops both Objects and releases the resources.
        /// </summary>
        protected override void OnStop()
        {
            Utilities.StopEntireProcess = true;
            Logger.log.Info("Threads are getting stopped...");

            gaosMsgRecvingService._msgRecvingThread.Join();
            gaosMsgPublishingService._msgPublishingThread.Join();
            gaosMsgProcessingService._msgProcessingThread.Join();

            gaosMsgRecvingService = null;
            gaosMsgPublishingService = null;
            gaosMsgProcessingService = null;

            //eventLog1.WriteEntry("All Threads are stopped.");
            Logger.log.Info("All Threads are stopped.");

            _thread.Join();
            _thread = null;
        }

        public void ThreadCaller()
        {
            try
            {
                gaosMsgRecvingService = new GaosMsgRecvingService();
                gaosMsgPublishingService = new GAOSMsgPublishingService();
                gaosMsgProcessingService = new GaosMsgProcessingService();

                gaosMsgRecvingService.Start();
                gaosMsgPublishingService.Start();
                gaosMsgProcessingService.Start();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Logger.log.Error(ex);
            }
        }

I have implemented timer to check if all the threads are stopped. It is success.

 private void ServiceTimer()
        {
            aTimer = new System.Timers.Timer();
            aTimer.Elapsed += new ElapsedEventHandler(OnTimedEvent);
            aTimer.Interval = 30000;
            aTimer.Enabled = true;  
        }

        private void OnTimedEvent(object source, ElapsedEventArgs e)
        {
            while (!gaosMsgRecvingService.IsAlive() && !gaosMsgProcessingService.IsAlive() && !gaosMsgProcessingService.IsAlive())
            {
                controller = new ServiceController(Process.GetCurrentProcess().ProcessName.ToString());
                controller.Stop();
                controller.Close();
            }
        }
