The easy way is to download android mate from the market. In that you can show system apps find the one you want, such as hookt long press press properties and find where it is installed. It is in /system/app by the way, most will be.

Then using a file explore that has read/write capability, I used root explorer,
you then got to /system/app and make sure to toggle r/o to r/w long press the apk and delete, make sure to also delete the corresponding odex.

Just one thing to remember DO NOT GO CRAZY deleting what you do not know if you delete something important your phone wont work.

for a quick rundown of what I did look
