    Hi -

    I installed some apps hosted on mediafire (Gallery3D, Voice Search, etc). I was following links from a well known page recommending tips and improvements to an HTC Desire.

    How do you uninstall stuff like that? Normally you have to go via the market, but in this case I can't.

    Having read the thread on unsafe apps, I'm worried I've got these things from an untrusted source.

    What can I do if I want to get them off my phone?

    Thanks

    You can also install Astro app manager... if you dont alreday have it.
    You can use this to install and uninstall non market apps

    Thanks guys for the info. Yes, I have Astro. Still slightly concerned about whether it would really remove everything a malicious app might add to your phone. :thinking:
