A

Service Controller "sc delete" command can be used to delete an existing service on Windows 7.

There is no "undelete" command to restore any services you have deleted. So be careful, do not delete any services that you are not sure about.

Disabling the service you don't want to run is a safer than deleting it.

For example, the following command deletes the service called "CalcService":

C:\users\fyicenter>sc delete CalcService

[SC] DeleteService SUCCESS


C:\users\fyicenter>sc query CalcService

[SC] EnumQueryServicesStatus:OpenService FAILED 1060:
The specified service does not exist as an installed service
