I want to uninstall Process Monitor. I don't use it. I don't need it. I just had it up a minute ago to look through it and after I closed it, it started grabbing 90% to 100% of the CPU. I've also had a couple of programs object to the fact that I had a debugger running - when I didn't know there was a debugger running or even realize I had such a thing. SO - I am thinking - maybe that issue is related. I'm pretty sure I can just reboot and get Process Monitor to stop hogging all my system resources. The issue is, I just want rid of it and can find no way to uninstall. No listing in Add/Remove Programs. It doesn't show up in Revo Uninstaller. No uninstaller came with the program.

Can anybody help?

Thanks.

SysInternals' ProcessMonitor comes either in ZIP or ZIP SFX distribution archive. It has no setup program. You just unzip/extract the contents to a folder and start using it. As such, it cannot be uninstalled. If you no longer want it, then you may delete it.

As what Romeo29 has said, just delete the folder that you extracted ProcessMonitor to (Right-click + delete)
