    this ought to be good.

    I will bite. Why would you want to stop recovery?
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Re-started SQL and it wouldn't allow access since it was busy recovering a large bad database. Wanted to kill that and restore the good backup.

    Thanks

    Short answer is that ti can not be stopped. It can be sabotaged, though. Shut down SQL Server, rename the MDF file for the database, and restart SQL Server. The database should show up as suspect, and you can restore over that. This is, of course a one way deal, however, so you should be very sure this is what you want.
