How to restart a service in Windows Server 2008

Sometimes a Windows service freezes up, and it needs to be restarted.  You can restart all of the services by rebooting the computer, but many times this isn't a realistic solution, especially when you're dealing with a server.  This article shows you how to restart an individual Windows service in Windows Server 2008.

- Click the Start button
- Select Administrative Tools from the Start menu
- Select Services
- Scroll down the list to find the service you want to restart, and click on it once
- Click Restart (in blue)

If your Start menu doesn't have the Administrative Tools option, type "services" into the Search bar and then select Services from the list of results (or press <ENTER> if it's the highlighted result).
