Service name doesn't get cleared from the "Services" panel after un-install

P: n/a
I installed a service program. It contained executables in the form
of .exe and .dll files. And the service was started automatically
after the install.

Then, I UN-installed the program, but the service didn't get cleared
from the "Service" panel. How can I delete this "service" from the
"Services" panel?

You reboot the machine.

I restarted the machine, but the service name still appears in the
"Services" panel.

Are sure the uninstall was successful? What did you use to uninstall the
service? What did you use to install the service?

I used an installer to install the service. It contains bunch of .dlls
and .exes. Once it was installed, the service was automatically
started. I un-installed it from "Control Panel" -"Add or Remove
Programs"

I know some installers can install a service like Installshield. However, I
have never seen anyone try to uninstall a service that was used that was
installed with IS.

I have always used the .Net service installer InstallUtil at the Command
Prompt to install and uninstall the Service.exe. You might want to try the
..Net installer. It might even work and help you out in this case to
completely uninstall the service. Use Google and find put how to use .Net's
InstallUtil.
