    Not understanding the question.
    Do you wish to disable it from starting after a restart?

    Take a look at:
    Code:
    technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc990290(v=ws.10).aspx
    using start=disabled

    Dave your question is some what confusing, you don't need to touch registry if stopping or starting a service..:eek:
    Do you want to disable the service from starting ?
    If so i would use registry, maybe something like:

    Code:
    //2 = Automatic
    //3 = Manual
    //4 = Disabled 
    
    RegistryKey ss = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(@"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ServiceName", true);
                ss.SetValue("Start", 4);
                ss.Close(); 
    :eek:

    then what would you use? ServiceController provides better error handling than shellexec lol. I use SC.exe just to install my services then ServiceController to do the rest.

    lol Alpha...

    I think that WMI could stop and disable it not sure though.. i will look into it

    EDIT: wmi would do it better.

    Code:
    ' Lock to Your service - Mine is Reboot-To Updater service
                    Dim classInstance As New ManagementObject( _
                        "root\CIMV2", _
                        "Win32_Service.Name='SF-Reboot-To'", _
                        Nothing)
    
    Dim outParams As ManagementBaseObject = _
                        classInstance.InvokeMethod("StopService", Nothing, Nothing)
    
                    ' List outParams
                    Console.WriteLine("Out parameters:")
                    Console.WriteLine("ReturnValue: {0}", outParams("ReturnValue"))
    
                    ' Obtain [in] parameters for the method
                    Dim DisabledParam As ManagementBaseObject = _
                        classInstance.GetMethodParameters("ChangeStartMode")
    
                    ' Add the input parameters.
                    DisabledParam("StartMode") =  "Disabled"
    
                    ' Execute the method and obtain the return values.
                    Dim outDisable As ManagementBaseObject = _
                        classInstance.InvokeMethod("ChangeStartMode", DisabledParam, Nothing)
    
                    ' List outParams
                    Console.WriteLine("Out parameters:")
                    Console.WriteLine("ReturnValue: {0}", outDisable("ReturnValue"))

    dump the reg item that you are disabling then delete the reg value.

    for services make a list of them and disable the ones that you want and store a list in the registry or a file on the hdd.

    PMR already done it for you:
    Code:
    Dim classInstance As New ManagementObject("root\CIMV2", "Win32_Service.Name='ServiceName'", Nothing)
            Dim outParams As ManagementBaseObject = classInstance.InvokeMethod("StopService", Nothing, Nothing)
            Dim DisabledParam As ManagementBaseObject = classInstance.GetMethodParameters("ChangeStartMode")
            DisabledParam("StartMode") = "Disabled"
            Dim outDisable As ManagementBaseObject = classInstance.InvokeMethod("ChangeStartMode", DisabledParam, Nothing)
    Another crappy way:
    Code:
    For Each obj In GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2").ExecQuery("Select State from Win32_Service where Name = 'ServiceName'")
                If obj.State = "Running" Then
                    obj.StopService()
                End If
                obj.ChangeStartMode("Disabled")
            Next
