Hard to say without knowing the brand/model of screen protector you bought. There are several different types.

I've had a couple of these -> Martin Fields Screen Protector - HTC Desire

I rate them highly, just be careful applying it as your fingerprints will stick to the inside plastic if you dont handle it carefully. It's semi-rigid and on the three I've fitted had no air-bubbles.

Not sure if the WildFire one is as good, but should be -> Martin Fields Screen Protector - HTC Wildfire

Not all screen protectors are the same. Some require more skill than others as well.

You may need to try a different one (a different brand). I've never had much luck with reapplying any of them.

I just ordered a Zagg Invisible shield 8.99 delivered in the Uk ...see how it goes
Zagg InvisibleSHIELD HTC Wildfire - Full Body SHIELD - Mobiles at Play.com (UK)

Personally I think the manufacturers should apply something as standard

got my new Zagg Invisible Shield screen protector .Seems ok any bubbles etc are now gone the next day , my gripe is that its sticky to the touch . I really hope this improves ,dont think it will . Really this is not the best for a touch screen phone as your fingers tend to drag across the screen because of the stickiness,using Swype is really not good with this protector.Scrolling through the screens is erratic. Gonna ditch it if it does not improve
Does anyone have any recommendations for a protector that will work with Swype/Shape writer ?

Most of these would be fine. The official one especially.
I bought the G5 one's for my Desire and you wouldn't even know it was on the phone.
