Occasionally when a program is uninstalled the associated service is not removed but marked for deletion requiring a reboot to complete the process. This can occur where another process has an open handle to the service, for example the services console was open at the time of removal.
To delete the service without rebooting the machine the sc delete command may be used which deletes the service's entry from the registry.
sc delete [service name]
sc delete "Advanced Monitoring Agent"
sc delete Advanced Monitoring Agent
Further information on the sc delete command may be found in the following Microsoft Technet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742045(WS.10).aspx
After executing the deletion command, open the services console (Start/Run/services.msc) to confirm the service is removed.
