I am using SQL Server 2008 and Oracle 11G on my system.

Running both database services is making my system very slow. In order to stop the services I have to go to Services and stop them manually.

Is there way to manage the services from my desktop, similar to XAMPP?

You could create a couple of batch files on your desktop and use net start and net stop. Then you'd just double-click on whatever action you want to take. No software required.


Or, you could create Powershell scripts and use start-service and stop-service

start-service MSSQLSERVER
stop-service MSSQLSERVER
