Practically speaking, uninstalling an application should remove all its associated windows services and manually deleting windows services is not a preferred way to do.

However, if it is necessary to manually remove a service, then follow the steps:

  1. Run regedit or regedt32.
  2. Find the registry entry at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services
  3. Find the service there and delete it.
  • You will have to reboot server manager before the list gets updated in.

Hope it is useful to you.
