Registered services on Windows

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.
