Hello everybody out there !

I have just got my Mac a month ago or two , and I haven't found all the functions yet. And that include, "How to uninstall programs/applications"

Well, I saw a few movies on YouTube - Broadcast Yourself., which shows how to remove programs/applications. But where is my Geektool folder or what's called.
I can only find the icon, when I open System Settings and then under "Others" and then Geektool.

So if YOU are friendly can you then guide me to how unintall Geektool. I'm TIED of the slowly refreshing....

Thank you very much for taking time to read/answer it !

The easiest way to get rid of it would be by downloading TrashMe from MacUpdate.
Once you have downloaded TrashMe, open it and click on Others. Scroll down and look for the GeekTool icon. Check the checkbox in front of GekTool and click Find Files. Then it will display all files related to GeekTool and you can click delete. If there are any files in the list that don't belong to GeekTool, uncheck them and TrashMe won't delete them.

Or find and hand delete them,
/Users/yourusername/Library/PreferencePanes/GeekTool.prefpane
/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/org.tynsoe.geektool.prefpane.plist
