    Perform factory reset! Everything on the phone delete except the SD card. Or if you need to remove your wife Google account on market app, then clear its data and cache. Likewise you can apply all the apps.

    Can you not add a second gmail account, sync that one and turn off sync for the account you don't want to use? Or does that not work?

    Did that and there was no option to delete.
    These are Picasa Web album and Blogspot photos.

    I did a very nervous factory reset and they have gone but I've unchecked all the Google settings, for the time being, anyway!

    Thanks for your help :)
