How Do I Remove some things?

How do I… Remove “AventGo channels” from Internet Favorites. Once signed up for there service, using that favorite tells you to access AventGo by taping start>programs>avantgo. So that Favorite short cut is useless. When I select the Add/Delete tap the Delete option is grayed out for removing the AvantGo Channels. I have an Icon in my Games folder named “Icon”. It looks like a folder with playing cards in front of it. When I click on it, I get”Cannot find ‘shellres’ (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and all the required libraries are available.” How do I delete this icon? Can I remove PocketTV Pro by deleting the file under Program files? If I do will it leave dead links on the programs page? Can I remove the Help and How Do I programs? I don’t ever plan to use messenger. Can I remove it or is it embedded?

I’m not sure that you can – I see the same problem as you.

Go To START > PROGRAMS > FILE EXPLORER Use File Explorer to navigate to My Device\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and delete the icon from there. – click and hold and then you’ll see the DELETE command.

If these programs came pre-installled then they are held in ROM, and you cannot delete them.

Those programs are in ROM , so deleting them will not free up RAM. You’d be better of getting a storage card and moving your larger data files, like music and photos, over to it. There is also an area in ROM called IPAQ FILE STORE. You can also use this area to store data and install programs to. It’s a different size on the various IPAQs, – on the 4700, for example, it is about 85MB.
