If you want to remove footer links for a them that is not purchased what you will have to do is open your footer.php. Find the div name the links are contained in. Go to the styles.css file and hide those divs. Do this by putting display: none; within that div in the styles.css.
Thanks Justin that did work..
– Located the div id “info” in my case
-Went to style.css
-put ” display: none; ” no quotes at the bottom of it

As the theme is not from the repository we are unable to offer support for it.
Also note that the provider specifically stated that the links in question are encrypted which is never a good thing. This is why we always encourage end users to use themes from the repository or trusted developers who do not encrypt their files and operate in accordance within the GPL guidelines.
@abirwd – as noted by Zulfikar Nore – we don’t support any themes like that. I’d strongly suggest you get rid of that theme asap – this may be enlightening –
