"Task Manger" - Ending a Service Process
This section provides a tutorial example on how to end a running process that resulted from a started program service using 'Task Manager'.
The last tool listed in my service management diagram is the "Task Manger", which can be used to view and end the running process resulted from a started program service. Here is an tutorial example on how to end the process resulted from the started "Google Updater Service":
1. Use the service console to start the "Google Updater Service".
2. Press "Alt-Ctrl-Delete" and select "Task Manager".
3. Select process "GoogleUpdaterService.exe" which is the running process for the "Google Updater Service".
4. Click the "End Process" button as shown in this picture:
5. This process will be ended.
But when you start your computer next time, "Google Updater Service" will start a running process again. So the best way to stop a service is to disable it or delete it from the registry.
