    Hi all
    About a month ago I installed some games through the android market onto my htc wildfire. Ive now finished playing them so want to uninstall them but they're not showing in my download list so don't have an uninstall option available.
    I've tried re-installing them but that has only installed a second copy of the game (i was able to uninstall the second copy but not the first)
    Ive been onto the htc website and downloaded the latest firmware but that didn't work. Ive run out of ideas now, any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    Titanium Backup has a pretty powerfull uninstall tool. I use it pretty exclusively for cleaning off my phone.

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications

    Then scroll to find the apps you want to uninstall and click the uninstall button.

    i have found several ways to uninstall programs, the more ways the better imo. all of those mentioned above. Also if you are using LauncherPro you can long press on the icon in the app drawer or an icon on your home screen and drag it to the trash and then keep pressing until it gives you the message to uninstall. This is usually the fastest way for me.

    Thanks for all the help, it worked using menu, settings, applications, manage applicatons, really could find that way to do it before.
    I might check out titanium backup for future reference.
    Thanks again
