Hi. I'm very new and just installed pixelpost.
Can anyone direct me as to where and how I can change the information on the "about" page.
or delete it off all together.

Sure. In your templates folder there might be several other folders. Each folder contains the template files for a specific template.
We have a couple of standard template files for the image (image_template.html), the archives (browse_template.html) and the about (about_template.html). These files contain a mix of Pixelpost code as well as normal HTML.
Since they are normal text files they can be edited by using a real text editor. If you're on a MAC I would suggest using Textedit (if you do please read an earlier post (http://www.pixelpost.org/forum/showthread.php?p=56781#post56781) detailing with problems with Textedit and Pixelpost files).
If you're on Windows you can use the FREE Notepad ++ program (http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm).
To edit the files download the file to your computer by the FTP program. Make a copy just to be sure and edit it with the editors mentioned above and reupload.
You might see some strange code while editing. Don't be afraid, it is just HTML. Leave that alone and focus on the text.
If you're interested in learning more about HTML then have a look at W3schools (http://www.w3schools.com/HTML/)
Deleting the file is also an option but you have to remove the link to the about file on every page. Since I have no clue what template you're using describing this is kinda hard, since there are multiple ways for template designers to put that link in there.
Best of luck!!
