Re: Weird Service in my windows 8.1 services.

Thanks, I uninstalled the program and remove the registry key now when I open up my services, the service is still there but just an error saying it can't be opened.

Reboot. By deleting the key directly, the service controller hasn't been told that the service no longer exists. It'll figure it out on restart (i.e., when it reads in the service database from the registry).

You can delete the service entry in regedit, or autoruns. Just be careful either way to not delete anything else.

So you navigated to HLKM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services in regedit, found the funny key name in the left pain, selected it and then either (a) right-click, delete, or (b) edit->delete from the menu.

Then you rebooted.

Right?

And the service is still visible ... where?
