[vbox-dev] VBoxDrv not stoppable? (Windows host)

I noticed that VBoxDrv on Windows host can't be stopped using command like this:
net stop vboxdrv
even after changing the service start value to be 3 (on demand).
Is there any particular reason why this driver can't be stopped? 
net start vboxdrv  (after start, immediately do stop, no use at all)
net stop vboxdrv
sc query vboxdrv
        TYPE               : 1  KERNEL_DRIVER
        STATE              : 3  STOP_PENDING
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0
