    Removing applications

    To free up memory on your smartphone, you can remove applications
    that you no longer use. You can remove only applications, patches, and
    extensions that you install; you cannot remove the built-in applications
    that reside in the ROM portion of your smartphone.
    1. Press Start and select Settings.
    2. Select the System tab, and then select Remove Programs .
    3. Highlight the application that you want to remove.
    4. Select Remove.
    5. Select Yes to confirm deletion.

    Use ActiveSync to remove it. Thats the best way.

    Ok, and how does that work exactly?

    Hook your device up via USB cord and make sure you have active sync working and your computer makes a connection to the phone. Once you have a connection. Click on the TOOLS button, then click ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS. Select the program you want to remove and uninstall it. Once done, you probably will need to reset your Treo.

    hope that helps.

    Since ya said you needed to get it "off ya phone", I assumed that you had already gotten it off ya PC. From previous posts I have read that PDANet wraps itself around Hotsync / ActiveSync so that will be important.

    Not familiar with the program but many Palm prorams such as Crash, STOIC and others need to be disabled before they can be removed. If the program is "active" in memory, monitoring or hooking into something, you won't be able to delete it.

    Again, not being a user I am guessing here but that fits into how all OS's behave and why windows desktop reboots itself to finish many installations.
