Hi I would like too know why when I uninstall a program Windows will leave a service behind with no executable? common sense tells me this is not right. With that said how then do I fix the issue?

What exact service are you speaking of ? The exact name of the service.
This is a service below:
Service: Mozilla Maintenance Service (MozillaMaintenance) - Mozilla Foundation - C:\Program Files\Mozilla Maintenance Service\maintenanceservice.exe
The name of this service is (MozillaMaintenance)

There is no problem on my PC. I was reading about other people having this issue and if I ever run across this issue I would like to know how to fix it. I will research msi.

If it becomes necessary to delete a service that has been left behind,
Open a Command Prompt and enter
sc delete <service-name>
This procedure should be carried out by someone with experience, deleting a wrong service can make Windows un-bootable.

Yes in my research I have found what you say is true. But the question still remains is this normal to have to take these steps to uninstall a service? Or is there a problem with the OS or Microsoft Installer?

OK Thank You. So this leads me to ask what is the fix? If it is not isolated to one particular service. Microsoft patch/update or something a user can repair with software like?

MSI Error 1722: 'There is a problem with the Windows Installer Package' during installation/uninstallation
Each error and there are many may have a different approach to fixing, so a Google search of the error can be helpful and possibly could lead to a Microsoft patch available for that particular error.
I'm a malware remover an generally don't get into these issues much, I see them occasionally. Sometimes I'll have the user run System file checker on the windows machine experiencing this problem, especially if windows is not sending out an error.

I am not an expert in this area, I'm posting what I have seen and experienced.
