Services in Windows XP
I always face the same problem when deleting/uninstall an Oracle database from my laptop. I don't know why, but I have always some Oracle services left. After a while you have an large list of services, you no longer need to see...Since you cannot delete them from the services screen, I found a way to delete them from the command line.
In the command prompt use the following :
to delete a service you no longer use : sc delete 'service name' After refreshing the screen, you will notice the service is no longer in the list....
