Remove a Service

Recommended Posts

Graywalker

A naughty program uninstall leaves behind a couple services.

I've got a script to use psservice.exe to stop the service and disable it. I can delete the program folder. Yet, it still shows up as a service (even though its disabled).

How do I purge this leftover from the system so I never have to see it again?

Will deleting it from the Registry - [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\leftoverservice] - get rid of it or is there more I need to do?

( I am trying to purge systems of CA Unicenter, versions 4 and 11 if anyone is interested in the whole process )

$servicename = "leftoverservice"
Run("sc delete "&$servicename)
