Can you give more info - Like which service you want to start? How important is error checking? – RobW Feb 12 '10 at 15:59

SC and net start net stop are the way to go.

MS KB link for SC.

Technet on net commands.

there's also iisrest which is a command line utility specifically for IIS.

Why not just use SC?

I want batch file commands so that i can execute the batch file. – krish Feb 10 '10 at 9:38
So... put it in a batch file. A batch file is merely a series of otherwise single command lines. If you read the link I posted, you'd find examples. Examples like: sc \\server1 start schedule sc \\server4 start messenger sc \\server1 stop schedule sc \\server4 stop messenger sc \\webserver stop w3svc sc \\webserver start w3svc – Multiverse IT Feb 10 '10 at 12:03

To elevate past UAC (if that is what you mean by run with admin privileges) you can use elevate.cmd -
