How do I delete a Hidden Windows Service using .NET

P: 5

I would like to Know how a hidden service can be deleted in Windows.
For example I have a driver file that is registered as a service and I would like to be able to delete the service.

The driver is listed under device manager under non plug and play drivers and the file and the service is not visible in Windows.

I know how to remove it manually,but would like to automate the process using .net.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I know you say it's hidden, but would something like this help? Also, it does it shows how to do it remotely, but I'm sure you can work around it to work on the local computer.
