I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why would you like to do that? That service is an integral part of the system.
Mr TorturSystem EngineerCommented:
did you try to run a command prompt as Administrator and stop the service via net stop command?

hi all,

Sorry for the late update. I have successfully stopped it via safe mode.

Actually this is because i want to fix my security log that was corrupted.

Many thanks all.

Appreciate your kind advices.
