    Downloaded from an untrusted source and now I am not able to uninstall it. It is not showing in the app list but the app is still running...
    Please help. Is there anyway to force stop the app?

    Can you see it under settings - security - device administrators? Is there anything unusual in that list?

    When trying to remove android settings it is showing :- settings app is unfortunately stopped.
    It's not causing any big issue with my usage though but I dont like to see a faulty app running in the background.
    Did someone manage to delete it?

    I've never seen that "Android settings" before, but it looks a bit strange. Did a little search and found this other thread.

    Maybe safe mode is a good option for as well.

    Hold power button and when the Power off message pops up long press on it.

    Glad it helped! Have that "Android settings" disappeared from device administrators or is still there?
