I have recently downloaded STOPzilla onto my laptop, OS is Windows 7. I have realised I don't really want it since it takes up a lot of memory. I am unable to remove it in the conventional way through control panel. I have deleted all the files associated with it but it still appears in my task manager. I have managed to stop it running but would prefer to have it off of my laptop completely.

I couldn't find a topic already open for this, sorry if there already is one.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Stopzilla is a rogue program

Try running Revo Uninstaller to remove it.
