backup job engine service is stopping

Level 3
for some reasons, a backup job was stuck for a few days. as everyone knows, if you try to cancel a job in BE 9.x, it'll just stay at cancelling.... and never actually does. and i've found in the past, the only way to actually cancel a job was to stop the backup job engine service, which i did this time again. BUT! i forgot to close the BE before i (tried to) stopped the service so now the service status is stuck at 'stopping'.
this is on a win 2k server with resource kit. i tried 'kill' command but no avail....
help, please!!

Level 6

Have you tried rebooting the server?
