Maybe something as simple as; "sc.exe delete servicename" would be good enough.

I'm not sure why people would go out of their way to download a 3rd party util when sc.exe which comes with the OS does this just fine (even on remote PCs). PowerShell (and vbscript/jscript) can also do this by the WMI way: enum Win32_Service, filtering on the service name, then call the Delete method on it -- in a simple one-liner:

(gwmi win32_service -filter "name='ServiceNameHere'").delete()

Obviously, sc.exe/PowerShell or whatever will have to be run elevated for it to work.

AFAIK results are the same, being the only difference a more user-friendly interface.
