How do I stop CK Zombies?!

I keep getting ads in the notification bar thanks to CK Zombies.
So I went to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Running, and stopped it.
But it keeps waking up! I don't necessarily want to remove it. Help!

Good question, I had the same problem. It kept offering me "x% off x today only!" etc etc. I uninstalled the app and gave it a 1* rating in the market for being adware. It's unacceptable to give people advertising notifications which can't be turned off, IMO.

Remove it. Than go to the Market and do give it 0 stars!

Sorry, but I have zero tolerance for apps that display such a behaviour. Free or paid.

Anyhow, is your phone rooted?
Frankly though, I don't think there's anything you can do.

Startup Auditor http://www.appbrain.com/app/startup-auditor/com.vesperaNovus.app.StartupAuditor lets you disable programs from starting automatically/at boot, but I know many peeps have reported probs caused by SA... Give it a try.
