I don't know if it's any use to you, but if you have an .exe besides
the service .exe you could ask that .exe to stop the service using
[UninstallRun]. Or if you don't want to use net.exe, you could include
something like MS's sc.exe

I tried your list of icons and it ends up alphabetically in the menu
(using XP). Maybe you installed to an existing menu? Windows remembers
the settings chosen by the user. You could probably reset those
settings by clearing the registry key I mentioned, but I'm not sure
your users would be too happy about that.
