Windows 7: How to de-install services (without original program)?

How to de-install services (without original program)?

Assume some programs (which of cause do not belong to the "core" Win 7 system) created some services..

During deinstallation the original programs these programs do NOT cleanup their corrsponding services.

So is there a way to deinstall services later in another way?

I don't want to just disable them. I want a complete de-installation.

One simple command can delete any service:

Services - Delete

SC DELETE <ServiceName>
This completely removes the service in question. Note that you must specify it the internal name of the service, not the display name that Windows displays in the service list. You must run this as administrator for it to succeed.

Note that it just delete the service entry in the registry. It doesn't touches any file at all, so verify what the binary is and if it still exists before deleting.
