If you mean the iChat-Addon Chax, according to its website:

Removing Chax
There are two ways to remove Chax. The quickest way is to run the Chax installer and select "Remove". To manually remove Chax, open ~/Library/ScriptingAdditions (~ indicates your home folder) and move ChaxAddition.osax to the trash. After logging out and back in, empty the trash.
