Unhappy [Q] please help me remove superuser!

Hi everyone!

So I own an Sony Ericsson Xperia Play R800i with its normal Android Gingerbread.
I tried everything to Root this phone, but I failed. So I decided to keep it unrooted.
My only problem is that once I was trying to root it, but as always the program on my laptop failed and this time it left my phone with this Superuser.apk flashed into its system apps folder before it failed to root my phone and after failure left me with this app that I can not remove. I already have a very little internal storage, besides it's useless and I want to get rid of it.

What should I do?? :cryingg
My phone is not rooted, and yet I'm stuck with Superuser app hacked into my phone!
I don't know much about computers and IT either. What's the use of Superuser app on an unrooted phone...
I hope I can get it off.

Please help me!

Should probably post in the right forum.

The reason you can't remove it is that its a system app. As far as I know, you need root to delete system apps.
