How to uninstall RHN up2date?

I did search on the net and on lq forum to see if I could uninsttall it, and tried a few steps, but it keeps popping up everytime I log in.
Is there a way to uninstall it?

I think you just need to search for it, like this.
As root:
rpm -qa | grep "up2date"
This will give you a list of installed applications matching the above string. You should then be able to uninstall it using:
rpm -e <packageName>
You could also use YUM, see the man page for details.

I hope this helps
