Sometimes when stopping a service, Windows gets hung and your service is in a stopping state.
If your service is not stopping:
1. List all of your applications that have a registered PID
From the command line run:
Or determine the specific PID
Open an elevated command prompt and type in:
sc queryex servicename
2. After finding the PID for the service you want to kill run:
Taskkill /pid  /F
3. Your service should then be forcefully stopped and you should be able to start it again.
