How to stop a webservice from running

Last Modified: 2020-02-20
I have a webservice that ran with a bug in it. The web service is still running and I'd like to stop it from continuing to loop.

I am using Windows Server 2012R2 and IIS Version 8.5. It is a Windows Web Server.

I have stopped the website. I have stopped the application pool. I have waited a few minutes before restarting them.

But the webservice still keeps running in the background.

I have not reboot the box, but that is the next thing I am considering.

Any ideas? Thanks!
