I tried

net stop SPTimerV4
net start SPTimerV4

It says service is already stopping or starting

I also tried task manager and status of SPTimerV4 says its "stopping", I am not able to right click and start it there as well

What can be done other than a server restart?


Do an IISreset first then restart SharePoint Administrative services. Wait for some time. about 15 mins you restart. Then try to refresh the timer job and restart it.


In the details view of Task Manager, find OWSTIMER.EXE and End task.
