runwait comand line

Thanks in advance for help on this.

I need to stop and start the Antivirus service. my problem is the service is 2 words so i need to have quotes around it to work properly I cant seem to get the quotes right in a runwait(@comspec line..

I have

RunWait(@commSpec & " /c" & "sc stop ""symantec antivirus"" & "")

It fails every time.  I can get it to work if i just save the line(sc stop "Symantec AntiVirus") as a .cmd then execute the cmd file. but that seems like extra work..

@Comspec instead of @Commspec may help you to start off with. 

Try this out, untested..

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c sc stop "symantec antivirus"')
