If you open up an Exchange Management Shell on the Exchange mailbox server and enter in the following:

Get-Mailbox -Arbitration

It will list all the arbitration mailboxes in the organization.  If this is your only Exchange 2010 mailbox server in the organization, then you can remove them with the following:

Get-Mailbox -Arbitration | Remove-Mailbox

If you have other Exchange 2010 mailbox servers, then you are going to need to filter it to only this server.  Do that with the following:

Get-Mailbox -Server SERVERNAME -Arbitration | Remove-Mailbox

where SERVERNAME is the hostname of the mailbox server you are trying to uninstall.
