    Maybe you should remove it as device administrator from settings. Then it will uninstall just fine.

    Thanks a bunch. Never knew apps could assign themselves as device administrators, or that you wouldn't be able to uninstall them if they did. That worked, and it saved me one big headache. Still think it was Malware posing as Phone Guard Security, but as long as it hasn't charged anything to my account I could care less (and I'll find that out as soon as I talk to Sprint tomorrow).
