vmware starts a number of processes with different names that run in the background
to support the main vmware process when you run it. These vmware support processes
are also set to start up every time you boot.

Here's a quick an dirty way to do it with a reboot:

First, exit KDE; then, from a root console:

# rm /etc/init.d/vmware
# shutdown -r now
# rpm -e VMware

Since the script the starts the support processes has been removed, they will
not be running after the reboot.

Good luck,
