  4. And then navigate to Settings > Apps > All apps tab > open File Manager (touch launch) and browse through to the 'Go Launcher' .apk file and tap to install it. It may be necessary to restart the table afterwards.

Yes you do not have to uninstall it again. It will be you launcher until further notice. Do you get a 'Disable' option maybe? You may need to be rooted to be able to remove it. When you look under Settings > About tablet > Model >... do yo see Motion 11 or something else.
