Log into your server via SSH as root and execute the following:

rm -rf /var/netenberg/fantastico_de_luxe/
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico*
rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/*/fantastico
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/cells/fantastico.html
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/cells/cpanelplugin_Fantastico_De_Luxe.html
rm -f /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/addon_fantastico.cgi

Finally, remove the Fantastico update cron job from the root cron (via crontab -e or however you prefer to do it). This is what the cron job looks like:

note: time that the cron job runs may vary.
