Unhappy [Q] How can I get rid of Knox?

I've tried removal apps, I've tried locating the app itself since apparently you can uninstall it that way but to no avail. The damn thing is crashing Super SU and Xposed, I can't figure out a way of actually getting rid of it. The removal apps crash upon attempt and the app itself isnt showing up but I can see its on the device so what can I do?

Edit: I knew it would be some easy fix and I'd feel dumb after...well turns out I just needed to update SuperSU.

There are several ways to remove Knox after you've taken the 4.3 update. The first is to install the Knox remover script. See (Option 2) in the thread below for guidance...

The other is to disable it from your apps drawer itself. See link below for guidance ...

Finally, you can follow Samsung's own instructions as follows...

I guess you are having difficulties with either of the last 2 options because you can't locate the App. The first option would, therefore, be your best bet.
