PHOTOBUCKET was THE 1ST app that I uninstalled AND deleted when I first rooted.{Invasive POS}!
Are you trying to uninstall via SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS?
If so,skip it & just go directly to TB to uninstall &/or delete(back-up this app first,if desired).If you have TB PRO,you have the option of FREEZING the app & it will not show up in your app drawer or desktop.
BTW,you can always d/l PHOTOBUCKET from the market at a later date,if desired.Its not as invasive as the factory installed version.

Keep us posted on your progress & a big WELCOME TO THE FORUM!

You might not want to try this,but,did you try to DELETE?But,FIRST,if you haven't already,just try re-booting(turn phone off & back on,WHY don't people just say that anymore!LOL)
I had that problem w/an app not going away after un-installing(I believe it was PHOTOBUCKET) & it went away.BTW,I totally deleted PHOTOBUCKET,UNO,& approx. 7-8 other POS bloatware apps,no problems,just don't delete anything GOOGLE related.{See safe to delete list @ front of this forum.}

Glad to hear you're freed of that POS bloatware from your phone.It kept turning itself on & attempting to upload my pix,even BEFORE I'd actually tried to use the app.Don't know exactly what kind of permissions this app had,but,IMHO,way too invasive.At least a Doctor will wear a glove when he holds the 'Family Jewels' & asks you to cough!
