I have installed Views Bulk Operations but it is causing errors since it needs PHP 5.2.9 while my hosting is PHP 5.2.6. I have no option to turn it off, it has a red cross.

Yes, you can uninstall it, here is the easiest way-
If you have phpmyadmin access then-
You can disable a module via phpMyAdmin by login to phpMyAdmin. Then you must locate the database where Drupal is installed. Once you have done so look for the "system" table. Click and open it. Click to browse the table. Find the record for the module that is causing the problems and select the edit function. Set the status to "0" and save. So this will disable the module, now you can access your site and can easily login to backend and uninstall the module.
Just to add information to Rahul Mishras post, if you don't know which command lines to use to delete the module tables from PhpMyAdmin. Here's how:
SELECT name,status FROM system WHERE type='module';
SELECT name,status FROM system WHERE type='module' AND status='1';
SELECT name,status FROM system WHERE name='module_name';
UPDATE system SET status='0' WHERE name='module_name';
And lastly, clear the cache, just to be sure:
DELETE FROM cache_bootstrap WHERE cid='system_list';
