    Install Go Launcher or Launcher Pro and you can add them to a list of app not to display.

    Another option is to temp root and uninstall them.

    By not working, do you mean they don't function properly or that you don't want to use/see them? As mentioned, alternate launchers can hide the apps without rooting and removing them.
    - If it's just an app or two, go to the market and update them if possible. This may replace any corrupted data. You can also go into applications (menu>settings>manage applications) select the problem app and clear its data and cache.
    - If you have several stock installed apps that don't function/ force close, you probably should consider hard resetting the phone. This will refresh all the stock apps, but you'll have to configure the phone and re install all the apps you previously installed.

    Good luck!

    To use Twitdroyd you have to download a different version because the one on the phone violated Twitter's TOS and they banned it.

    The Twitter app from Twitter is better, as are some of the others (I like TwitPlus, so I use the one from Twitter.). Twitdroyd is a pain.

    Where and Poynt are pretty useless, at least when I have tried them. Just go to maps and search near by and you get better results from Google.
