1. post the script using code tags https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code

2. to remove it
Code:
ps -ef|grep script_name_here
which should return a line like
Code:
chris     3860     1  5 08:38 ?        00:33:26 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox
use the kill cmd on the process id, which is the first number eg
Code:
kill 3860
If it still won't die, try
Code:
kill -9 3860

if it was a bash script you can simply insert set -vx at the beginning and look at the output. You will see the last statement...
