Default i can't delete a live wallpaper

I have a live wallpaper that keeps randomly showing ads, and when I go to the app in settings, I can't press the uninstall button. Does anybody know how i can delete it?

So just to clarify, when you go to Settings > Apps and scroll the the live wallpaper that you have installed, the uninstall button is greyed out? Did you install it from the play store?

Ok, here's what works on my tablet...YMMV:
[It's currently running v4.2.2 of JellyBean, as I write this.]

Start in settings, apps, and see whether the app/widget in question is running.
(If so, you may need to stop it first, before un-installing)
There should be various buttons in that dialog, one of which will un-install it.

Hope this helps...
