    You can log into the market and hit menu/my apps. Pick the app you want to remove and select uninstall.

    The method you are using will only delete the shortcut from your home screen.

    Go into the app drawer, long press on the app you want to remove, and then tap the (-) sign at the top right of the app icon.

    You can also do it by going to settings, applications, manage applications. Click on the app you want to remove and press uninstall.
