Where you go to All Programs in Start, and then "Startup" - you see a program called 'Zooskmessenger' - this program was installed more than a year ago, and it's just still there with the white mini logo, there's no logo anymore and when I go to uninstall programs in control panel, it's not there.

 

So how do I get rid of it from my PC  ?

Sometimes...when a program is uninstalled...an icon representing a shorcut may remain.

 

The All Programs list is nothing but a list of shortcuts to the .exe files for programs installed.

 

If the program truly is uninstalled...you can just delete the icon from All Programs by right-clicking on it and pushing Delete.
