When an attempt is made to stop or start a Window or application service it may get stuck in stopping, starting state or prompts with Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
1. Find out the Service Name
To do this, go into services and double click on the service which has stuck. Make a note of the “Service Name”.
2. Find out the PID of the service
Open a command prompt and type in:
sc queryex [servicename]
(where [servicename] is the name of the service you obtained from Step 1) Make note of the PID.
3. Kill the PID
From the same command prompt type in:
taskkill /f /pid [PID]
(Where [PID] is the service number)
If it is successful you should receive the following message:
SUCCESS: The process with PID XXXX has been terminated.
