You can use WPKG to start, stop or restart services running on your Windows workstations.

To do it, simply use a net command.

The following example will restart a service:

net stop <service_name>
net start <service_name>

Other possibilities are pausing the service:

net pause <service_name>

And continuing a service that was earlier paused:

net continue <service_name>

To disable a service permanently ("Start Type"), you can use the sc command (the space before disabled is necessary):

sc config <service_name> start= disabled

To list all services that are currently running use net start from the CLI (command line) without parameters:

net start
