    I am having a problem completely removing a few apps.

    Google Earth, USA Today, Dictionary.com, and WiFi OnOff.

    I have "uninstalled" these apps thru Titanium Backup's un-installer & have removed all backups & info I could find. None of these programs are in my app drawer.

    But... every morning my phone shows all 4 of these programs as an "Update Available" notification. If I click on any of these 4 notifications, it takes me to the page where you would click to either "update" or "uninstall" the program. HOWEVER, the "uninstall" button is "greyed-out" & the only thing I Could click on is the "update" button. The "uninstall" button is greyed-out/ un-clickable because it is NOT installed and the phone knows it.

    So why do I keep getting notifications of an update being available for these programs that arent installed???

    any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

    BTW... Running BB0.9, Smoked Glass, 1g overclocking

    Have you tried installing the updates, then trying to uninstall the app through the market?
