How to manually delete Windows Services
Warning ! This post is for Windows advanced users only. Don\’t go there if you don\’t know what you are doing.
When I refer to \”delete Windows services\” I refer to the services left behind by a software you\’ve removed.
Example : Norton, Bit Defender or AVG.
Yesterday I was taking few screenshots from my Windows Services to show them to a friend and I was amazed of how many I had there, set on automatic startup…many that they shouldn\’t be there anymore.
So here\’s how to remove them if they are not automatically removed.
Go to Start, Run, type Regedit and navigate to the following key :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services and remove what you think is necessary from the software you have uninstalled and left a running service behind.
