That's easy, leave out the \usepackage{times}.

But why would you want to do that?

A better way to go is to change the *math* fonts also
to non-CM (not just the *text* fonts with "times" package).
See e.g. http://www.yandy.com/mathtime.htm

--- StripMime Report -- processed MIME parts ---
  text/plain (text body -- kept)
