I can only find it under system preferences, not under applications or utilities

After trashing the program, you might have to go into the Preferences and rejiggle the trackpad settings.

Sounds like it's system hack, not an application. Run a Spotlight search for side track (but maybe it's sidetrack) and trash everything it finds.

Until you gain more experience, stay away from haxies, (whether side track is or isn't). They can break with any system update and can have unforseen consequences, such as deep-sixing your trackpad.
