    Question Deleting icons?

    I just changed themes (running BBCM OS v7.1.3 and BBAmped theme) and noticed as I move icons around that the Flicr, VCast, and a bunch of other icons are appearing for things I shrunk and do not have installed. Instead of hiding them, is there a way to actually delete them? I did a file listing using CrackUtil but didn't see anything in the list that resembled what I wanted to delete/remove. Any ideas? Thanks. :dunno:

    unfortunately there is no way to delete them.... You have to simply hide them

    Laney can't you delete the service books for those items causing them to go away? Sorry for sticking my nose in :dead1:

    (Of course they will come back every time you resend your service books... ugh!)

    That's too complicated for me.... I tend to be a blonde so I don't mess with the service books before I break something lol

    Well it's really not a perm fix since every time you resend the service books they come back. It's kinda like spam from your carrier... BLAH!

    I've been deleting service books just recently to receive programs back. Like you said they are like "spam". Just hide them and place them in your application folder....I heard that placing unused items in a single folder can help save memory although the applications are technically not installed.
