1. Open Services With Help of Windows Search Box

2. Find the Service and Move to Properties
In the “Services” window, scroll down and find the service you’re after. Right-click the service and choose the “Properties” command.
3. The next Step Is to Copy the Service Name
In the service’s properties window, copy (or write down) the text to the right of the “Service name” entry.
4. Open Command Line With Administrative Privileges
Click Start, and then type “cmd” into the search box. Right-click the “Command Prompt” result, and then choose the “Run as administrator” command.
5. Input and Execute Following Command
At the Command Prompt, you’ll use the following syntax:
sc delete ServiceName

Start Regedit.exe and navigate to the following branch:
7. Delete Service with Help of Regedit.Exe

Right-click the appropriate key, and choose Delete. Exit the Registry Editor.
