    Hey Everyone,

    I just ran into this issue tonight; every time I HotSync, it reinstalls all of my apps that already exist on my Treo. In fact, it keeps trying to reinstall applications that I've deleted months ago. The last thing I did prior to this issue was uninstalling AvantGo (if that helps).

    I would really appreciate it if someone could list step-by-step instructions on what I have to do to resolve this issue. Btw, I did a quick search but couldn't find a definitive step-by-step resolution.

    Thanks, in advance!

    Interesting. I am not sure why it is trying to do this on a regular Hot Sync. Usually this only happens when you are doing a sync after a hard re-set and the restore process restores everything in the back up folder.

    Anyway, try deleting the programs you do not want re-installed out of the backup directory on your pc. (Program Files / Palm / user name / Backup)

    This should drive a stake thru the reappearing program's heart.

    But I am still concerned with why your Treo is doing this, on a normal Hot Sync.

    Good Luck.

    Do you have multiple profiles on your Palm Desktop?

    Rename your backup folder to something like "backup_old", then hotsync to backup your Treo. Then you will have the most current apps as a backup in the "newly" created backup folder.

    Check the settings for the system conduit and make sure it is set to sync (and not desktop overwrites handheld)

    Btw, I don't have multiple profiles on my Palm Desktop.
