    If you have your phone rooted you can try Titanium Backup from the Market. It has uninstall option.

    Just what I was going to suggest, be careful which ones you remove though as it will let you remove ones that are required for the phone to work.

    I have tried titanium and it does the same as root explorer... it deletes them.. but then they return when you close the app so they never really deleted

    Thats interesting, because Titanium completely removed Swype for me (only leaving behind a small file that prevented me from installing the updated Swype beta, eventually found and deleted said file with Root Explorer). What are you choosing to remove the programs?

    For Titanium Backup to work your phone has to be in USB Debugging mode, make sure it is before starting TB and when you go to Backup/Restore, select the app and select Un-install not Delete, Delete removes the backup files not the application.
