Registered services on Windows
Saturday, 28 July 2007
When a program registers itself as a service (that will constantly run in the background and does not show up in the Task Manager, FYI), it puts an entry under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ in the registry. If you have a service that won’t go away, you can try deleting its entry from the registry. As always, make sure you have a backup.
