The 7 Zip is not a harmful program, but can be hard to find the Uninstaller. I have sent an email to FileHippo for further directions on how to remove the Updater.
Have you looked for 7 Zip in C:\Program Files\7-Zip
there should be an executable called "uninstaller.exe
". Navigate to this executable, run it, and 7-Zip should be removed:
Or have you looked in Windows Explorer for any of these programs ??
