How do I find which services are running and close them?

I was trying to install Oracle9i (9.2.0.10) on Windows XP. It displays the error message "the following running services need to be shut down before continuing Oracle MTS Recovery Service. Certain files that need to be reinstalled by Oracle Universal Installer are being used by one or more running services." Where can I find what services are running on the computer and close them?

The services that need to be shut down can be accessed via the Services panel in Windows. Click on Start --> All Programs --> Administrative Tools --> Services.

Choose the service that must be stopped (in this case it is the OracleMTSRecoveryService), right-click on it and choose "Stop." If the service starts up again automatically, right-click on it and choose "Properties." Then choose the "Recovery" tab and ensure that "Take No Action" is defined for first, second and subsequent failures. If these are all configured to restart, no matter how many times the service is stopped, it will start up again on its own.
