In that case, look in the folder you downloaded, where the make file is located, if there is also an uninstall file.

Then run : "./uninstall"

If there isn't, try running "make uninstall".

If that don't work, best thing is to delete all files manually by checking the "make" file, and see where it has placed the files.

Good luck!
