Task Manager removed from Recent Apps in Galaxy s6 Software Update

Why was the manager from Recent apps removed in the Galaxy s6 software update? It was so helpful. It used to be where you would hold the app from the Recent Apps window and it would bring up a Task manager that would grant the access to uninstall or kill the destined process. It now just gives the option to open the recent app in a popup view. I have adware from an application that shows up in my Recent apps window and I cannot remove it because it is a hidden app without a name. The hidden application stems from a showing app however it would take hours to find out which app is being disguised. If Task manager was still there I would be able to remove the application efficiently.
