OK so after hours of playing around with this darn thing i figured it out. 1. So far the only thing i found that will root it is Gingerbreak. It works great, do a google search, and download. As far as i could tell V1.1 is the only one that will work with the Ascend. 2. Then use RootExplorer. You will have to go into the directory of the phone, and change it from R/O (Read Only) to R/W (Read Write). 3. You can use RootExplorer then to delete, or Titanium Back Up or whatever you choose to get rid of the Bloatware. Enjoy Everyone!
