Uninstall this site


This site is not an application and it does not get installed, it is only stored on your browser, so if you use IE, internet explorer , go to control panel, internet options, and delete temp files and all cookies, if you use Firefox, which is 100 times better and safer the IE, go to tools and clear recent history.
