 +====== Windows Services ======
 +===== Process Explorer =====
 +Sometimes you won't be able to kill a process using services.msc. You may be looking for the EXE... But the services are actually contained within wrapper processes under svchost.exe. Download [[http://​​processexplorer|Process Explorer]] and then go through each instance of svchost.exe - open it up, then go to the Services tab, you'll see each of the services that is contained within this wrapper process. You can click the "​Stop"​ button here - sometimes this will succeed in killing the process where other methods (services.exe,​ net stop) have failed.
