    Free templates often have crap in them, potentially harmful, like ads and hidden links and what not.

    You manually edit the php pages it has and search for the code, links, text, ... and edit them out, replace or remove it.

    Some encrypt their crap, others has dodgy code in it breaking your template if you change it.

    My advise would be to delete the theme and download it from the creators website or from wordpress.org.

    Perhaps 'free' really means 'ads over which you have no control". The ads probably make money for the theme maker. In other words, you're not paying for the theme, but templatic.com probably is every time your web page displays the ads from their template.
