To remove Intel heatsinks, look at the four corners. See the little arrow printed on each of the holding pins? Gently twist the pin in the direction of the arrow, it should then pull up. Repeat for the others, then the heatsink should come away.
To remove the artic paste you can normally use some kitchen towel on the heatsink and processor (gentle pressure on the processor otherwise you'll crack it) or you can buy some thermal paste cleaner with varying results. You just need something that's silicon based - Isopropyl alcohol for example, or Metho. Apparently toothpaste does the job as well.

Isopropyl acohol and cotton swabs work well for me.
