<CommonParameters>
This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,

"get-help about_commonparameters".

# INPUTS
System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController or System.String
You can pipe a service object or a string that contains the name of a service to Stop-Service.

# OUTPUTS
None or System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController
When you use the PassThru parameter, Stop-Service generates a System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController object representing the service. Otherwise, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

# NOTES

You can also refer to Stop-Service by its built-in alias, "spsv". For more information, see about_Aliases.

Stop-Service can control services only when the current user has permission to do so. If a command does not work correctly, you might not have the required permissions.

To find the service names and display names of the services on your system, type "get-service". The service names appear in the Name column and the display names appear in the DisplayName column.

# EXAMPLE 1

C:\PS>stop-service sysmonlog

# Description
-----------
This command stops the Performance Logs and Alerts (SysmonLog) service on the local computer.

# EXAMPLE 2

C:\PS>get-service -displayname telnet | stop-service

# Description
-----------
This command stops the Telnet service on the local computer. The command uses the Get-Service cmdlet to get an object representing the Telnet service. The pipeline operator (|) pipes the object to the Stop-Service cmdlet, which stops the service.

# EXAMPLE 3

C:\PS>get-service iisadmin | format-list -property name, dependentservices

C:PS>stop-service iisadmin -force -confirm

# Description
-----------
The Stop-Service command stops the IISAdmin service on the local computer. Because stopping this service also stops the services that depend on the IISAdmin service, it is best to precede the Stop-Service command with a command that lists the services that depend on the IISAdmin service.

The first command lists the services that depend on IISAdmin. It uses the Get-Service cmdlet to get an object representing the IISAdmin service. The pipeline operator (|) passes the result to the Format-List cmdlet. The command uses the Property parameter of Format-List to list only the Name and DependentServices properties of the service.

The second command stops the IISAdmin service. The Force parameter is required to stop a service that has dependent services. The command uses the Confirm parameter to request confirmation from the user before stopping each service.
