Hi,
Have you looked in add / remove programmes? You might be able to do it from there. It might be a good time to change your passwords on your laptop, and banking websites etc in case any are also on your phone?

No, there's nothing you can do. Even if you could somehow remotely connect to your stolen laptop, the thief has already seen and used the information. You can't erase his memory or burn every piece of paper in his house. He can call whoever he wants. However, harassment is a crime. If he's called your children, that means your phone company or wireless provider has a record of his phone number. File a police report.
