    • So its not on the add/remove programs (uninstall) list?
      Have you searched Computer>C:>Program Files and browsed for Kangobox?
      Or possibly Computer>C:>Windows
      And again Computer>C:>Windows>Win32
      The main folder should be titled “Kangobox” or “Click Potato

      The easiest way to go is to simply use search.

      There are a ton of other ways to go about deleting Kangobox or rendering it useless:
      Recover/Restore your computer to a previous time before Kangobox issues.
