How to switch off / uninstall 'Video unlimited'?

Please can someone tell me how to uninstall this annoying 'video unlimited'? I never use it; have never even opened it once, yet every time I look to see which Apps are running (& using up battery/memory); it is ALWAYS shown as running; even though I've never touched it! I always close it, but the next time I look it is there again, running, even though I never switch my phone off so it cannot have re-started on phone start-up. It is very annoying; I just want to get rid of it. I have an Xperis S, running ICS (have not yet upgraded to Jelly Bean due to bad reports about bugs, things not working etc).

Settings > apps > all > video unlimited > in some cases you cant uninstall it but you can diable it

Thanks; I already tried this; the 'disable' button is greyed out; I cannot select it; all I can do is 'force stop', but this only works for a while & then it re-activates itself & appears again in the 'now running' list. VERY annoying; why does Sony think they know what we want on our phones?..!

You could root your phone and uninstall all the apps that you want

1. root phone.

 

2. using a root explorer, locate the file /system/app/SemcSnpStore.apk.

 

3. set system files as writeable & move the above file to your sdcard as backup.

 

4. done!!!
