Without root, you can't. The best you can do is revoke it's administration rights in menu/settings/security

Use a file explorer like root explorer, navigate to system/apps (I'm not 100 sure this is the correct folder) and just simply delete the apk. Reboot if you want and you're done. Or use an app manager like titanium backup and find the app and delete it.
