So I have just received my new HTC Desire S phone a few days ago, and so far it is really a great phone. However I have encountered a problem. When I delete an app, the icon isn’t deleted along with it! So after having downloaded a random app, let’s say Robo Defense, I go to settings and uninstall it, by the “programs” function. After doing this, the game is no longer installed on the phone, but when I go to my main screen (the one where you can see all apps), Robo Defense is still presence. When I press the app it says: “This program is no longer installed on your telephone”.
Some bloke from Belgium suggested this and it worked for mine - hope it does for yours ....
The S doesn't really turn off with the default settings, it merely hibernates. To really turn it off, you'll need to untick the "Fast boot" option (Settings -> Power). Once it's unticked, restart the phone again. Keep in mind that the boot time will be a lot longer.
After I did what he said my icons had gone.

yes you can remove app icons from the main/home screens by holding down on the icon and moving to the delete (bottom right) area, but if you want to remove an app from the All App section then you need to press the second main icon (three lines) and select the remove app option, this takes you into another menu where you can select the app to remove (or not in case of carrier installed apps needing root permissions)
