RE: How to remove old entries within the 'services.msc' control panel

I have a few previous programs that left behind some of their crap within the 'services.msc' control panel and was wondering how I can deep six those entries for good.

Below is a screen-shot of the offending entries.





Tnx

That will work - you'll also find those service names under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<service name>, as well. Deletion from there does the same thing sc does, just in case you have issues with the command (that's all the sc delete command is doing, fyi).
