How To Force Stop Windows Service That Is Stuck?

We can stop a Windows service. If we know the name of the service, we can stop it using the cmd method.

Step 1: Open Command Prompt window by typing “cmd” in the Run command.

Step 2: Use “sc” command to get the PID of the service

sc queryex name_of_service

Step 3: kill the service using task kill command

taskkill /f /pid <paid_of_service>

Do not stop any service you don’t know about. It might cause problems.
