How delete an app that is locked?

I no longer use CrashPlan, but can not delete it, since it's locked. (Mac)

CrashPlan Locked
I can not log in since the account is gone.

I do seem to be able to access CrashPlan Service Preferences, but doubt they would do anything since there is no connection to the host.

Suggestions?
