Then type the command,
INSTSRV <SERVICENAME> REMOVE
Will completely remove the service... Dont forget to stop the SERVICE before you try to delete it, That will only help you...
Hope that your problem solved... If you want alternate solution, I can help you...
I will upload one EXE file, just copy it to ur SYSTEM32 folder and follow these
Goto command prompt, and use this command
/? Show usage
/brokenServices Show only services not in Running state but which should be
/deleteService <name> Delete the specified service
/deleteNoPrompt Delete service without prompting (for batch scripts)
Hope that your face is clear and happy...

i didn't really understood the syntax of servicesenum.exe - not sure if that can help.
an exaple would be to remove the service "remote registry" completely afetr stopping it.
