(you can add > \[filename\] to the end to make it output to a file, i.e. net start > services.lst). You can then try to shutdown each of them by entering the command
net stop "<service name>" ,e.g. net stop "spooler". Some services will ask you to enter a y to confirm, and for these just add /y to the end.

sc stop <service name>
