Well, is it right?

It should appear in the services applet (mmc), or you could try (at cmd):
NET STOP MYSERVICENAME

the point here being not to stop it, but to see if it exists; if it
doesn't exist you'll get an error saying so.

Note that you need to uninstall a service before you can re-install it.

Ah; scratch that - it might be talking about the error log - which might
suggest that it wasn't properly uninstalled last time.

Try looking under the various keys under
HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\Eventlog for a key called
MYSERVICNAME - it might need deleting.

You don't need to be messing around in the registry, just use installutil /u
on the service executable and it will make the necessary changes to the
registry to remove the service from the machine.
