If you search the forums, this question has been asked many times over the past 10 years.

The answer is always the same:
  1. The way to clear issue this is to reboot.
  2. There is no reason to worry about these zombie processes as they do not consume resources (memory, CPU).

Please use the search function here. It works great.
