Hi guys, due to some mess with mysql and apache and therefore unable to uninstall mysql, I looked thro’ the registry to search the entry that was important enough to remove the apache and mysql services.

On the way, I discovered a tool called “sc.exe”. Deleting a service has never become easier that that command 😀

1. Start->Run->cmd
2. sc delete service_name – where service_name is the service to be removed.

To find the service name,

1. Start->Run->services.msc
2. Find the service. The 1st column contains the service name. Use this in the sc command.
