      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. Windows Firewall Inbound and Outbound rules: Found under the "Advanced Settings" in "Windows Firewall" If you need any help feel free to send us an email or you can personally email me at Sean@Botcrawl.com
