kservice.exe – what is it and why can I not easily remove it?

I was just doing a checkup on my machine and I noticed a program had “Hung on starting” in the event viewer.   Kservice.

What the hell is that I thought…     well, without the boring details that is the file sharing (P2P) part of Sky by Broadband, sitting there even though I uninstalled it ages ago.   Agh!  WHY do companies do that…   when you remove a program, it should remove everything and not leave a file sharing application sitting on my PC thanks!

I have since found a couple of other comments on the subject:
