    Hello,

    Will this do same as Task Manager, I mean if we want to close some process using your command “sc delete NameOfService”, is it just going to close it or delete that program?

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter

      Hello Peter,

      This command will delete the windows service, not only stop it.

      If you want to stop it: sc stop NameOfService
