Is it possible to remove Airport Utility from Mountain Lion? If so how was it performed?
You should be able to just drag the AirPort Utility app from the Utilities folder (located in the Applications) to the trash.
There's also the:
/System/Library/CoreServices/AirPort Base Station Agent.app
But I wouldn't mess around with that.
Though I'm curious as to why you would need to do this, as it only stops you from configuring your AirPort equipment.
If say you didn't want someone else to be able to configure it then you don't tell them the password.
Though at-least grabbing the AirPort Utility from Apples website to reinstall it should be fairly easy, unlike a lot of the other built in applications.
Removing apps that are part of the OS X distribution can cause issues with OS X patches.
Or you might find weird dependencies where part of the Airport Utility is used for something else.
unable to delete
It gives an error something like application is required for Mountain lion. This makes no sense since this is a applications for managing Apple's WIFI devices which I do not use. the reason I want to remove it is simple its an application I will not be using on my Mac.
Just leave it, it's not worth the hassle removing it.
Yeah in that case I wouldn't try to remove it.
Personally I wouldn't touch any of the built in apps.
Especially those in the Utilities folder.
