    Thanks. I may have a use for it in the future, and that is good to know. I had looked for a while and did not have time to research it. I still don't have the time I need to learn more about the droid world. I love it, though. I'm not getting an iPhone any time soon! Sorry about the misunderstanding.

One of the things that happens though when an app is setup as a device administrator, is that it cannot be uninstalled via the normal method. This is to prevent unauthorized processes from uninstalling the app. All you had to do was go into Settings>Security>Device administrators and remove the check box next to Airdroid. This would then allow you to uninstall like normal and you would not have had to do a hard reset.
    God bless you erich93063 !
