Hello,

I have uninstalled WinMerge with its uninstaller because the system slowed down to a crawl.

Rebooted, etc. but it left C:\Program Files (x86)\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe (plus 3 DLLs)
Size=2,328,064 bytes
CRC64: 97425A0CAD1508AF
File version: 2.14.0.0
Date Mod: 2/2/2013 3:41 PM

Task cannot be killed from task manager. Still using a large % of CPU time and has a Firefox as a child task (cannot be killed either). I'm sys admin on my personal Win 8 device.

Questions:
1.is this a trojan?
2.what starts it up?
3.how can I remove it? (not a service and not in the standard Windows startup files)
4.will it cause any harm if I do remove it? (more that it is already causing)

Thank you!
