Okay, the first thing we need to is get the PID (process ID). By issuing the following command: ps -ax | grep -i filename. Where filename is the name of the application you want to terminate.

Once you have done that you should have the PID. The PID should be the number in the first column. Next you would issue the command: kill -9 PID. That should terminate the process. Your only problem is that it restart on boot up. After you terminate the process, you need to delete the application. Also you may need to check the following directory/folder OS X -> System _> Library -> AtartupItems. There maybe something in there that start the application on boot up.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
