Fix: ‘The specified service has been marked for deletion’ error

By | September 20, 2014

Today I’ve removed one software from the Windows 2008 server Add/Remove Programs. Later when verified the uninstall log showing error code 1. It means, that the specific service was not removed, verified the the services (services.msc), found that the service still showing up there, when I try start it error message popped up ‘The specified service has been marked for deletion’. It means un-installer tried to remove the service, didn’t worked out.

When searched for the service related files, all were removed. Again tried to remove the service from CMD line using the below command –

sc delete <service name>

Error: [SC] OpenService FAILED 1060
The specificed service does not exist as an installed service.

It says that, service not found, what is next?

The specified service has been marked for deletion
Tried with another to query the service name like below:

sc queryex “<service name>”

Error: [SC] EnumQueryServicesStatus: OpenService FAILED 1060:
The specificed service does not exist as an installed service.

Now its time to check the Registry:

Open Registry using ‘regedit’ from Run or Command line and search for the required application registry key and delete.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<service name>

Due to this removal, services.msc still shows the service (with a name, but no status or startup type), When attempting to view the properties, “The system cannot find the file specified.”
