    Can anyone help me with a fairly fundamental question please....

    Is HTC sense a good thing or should I try to remove it to speed the phone up. Is there a standard ICS launcher or does one need to have something - in which case HTC has to make the most sense (no pun intended) - I'm worried because Sense does seem to crash quite a bit and seems to be slow to get back to the home screen.
    Apologies if I'm talking nonsense - but perhaps there's a better, quicker launcher - and perhaps some HTC widgets will work with the new launcher??

    I've heard good things about Nova launcher. Go Launcher is pretty good too.

    You can't remove Sense without rooting and installing a custom ROM, and you don't really need to. Just set Sense to a blank scene so that it's using a minimum of memory before you change launchers. Before you install a custom launcher also install Home Switcher so that you can easily change between launchers at will.
