    You Tube is probably "bloatware". Came installed on the phone by Verizon. You can't just uninstall it (normally). You will have to root your phone, download Titanium(paid version) and 'freeze' it. You can unistall it with Titanium BUT you will have to have it on your phone to receive any updates to the phone software from you carrier (Verizon or other). That is why "freezing" it is better. You just unfreeze to get software updates.
