If so force quit the App and than drag it to the trash

first boot into safe mode. (hold shift at start up).

then delete it from start up items, (in system preferences - accounts) and delete it from your applications folder.

bang, you are done.

Click software update, install the latest security patch, and while at it, go to Safari, preferences, general, and uncheck open safe files after downloading.
