Hey Kathy,

                    Just in case to kill the process, Please open Task Manager, find the process ID.

  • Open Command Prompt as Administrator and run kill -9 /pid <process ID> /f
  •  As suggested by William, to remove JIRA as service.

     

  • Locate the JIRA Service name under services menu

  • Open Command Prompt

    Change the directory to bin of JIRA installation using command prompt
    ex: If JIRA is located at C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\
    1) cd C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin
    2) Run service.bat remove &lt;Service name&gt;


     

  • To re-Install JIRA Service

    Change the directory to bin of JIRA installation using command prompt
    ex: If JIRA is located at C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\
    1) cd C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin
    2) Run service.bat install &lt;Service name&gt;

sometimes windows unable to stop some services on demand. when I hit this error I kill the server task using task manager then again the windows service will respond to our commands.

Hi Kathy,

It might be a glitch with Windows, I would try to remove JIRA as a service, then add back, to see if the next interactions it will work just fine.
