    You can delete them with root explrorer, tho I have never gotten it to work :p
    Every time I remove an app, they just pop back in a sec -.-

    Why remove them? They're part of the OS

    well if you don't use stocks, twitter or some other than they are a waste of space...
    also you should be careful what you remove and make a backup first...so if anything goes wrong you can fix it.

    Are you rooted? That's the only way you're able to remove stock apps. hek99's instruction only works if your Desire is rooted.
