What kind of distro do you use, you can also remove programs without the terminal and do it
with system update. Please be a little bit more specific.

Ignore the comment about the correct forum. They were thinking about the LInux Security forum on this site. This is the correct forum for this type of question. While you probably will get your answer to your question here it would get answered quicker at a site forum dedicated to linux. There are many. Just google "Linux Forum" Here is one I found.

Depending on your distro, redhat for example has install tools you can also uninstall with, Mandrake has the Mandrake control center where you update your box, install programs and also uninstall.

As su try:
rpm -qa | grep package_name to get the details of the exact package name
and then rpm -e exact_package_name
To list all packages install to a file to browse rpm -qa>packages.txt
Or just install apt & synaptic and you can do it GUI.
