    I dont think it has to be rooted. I may be wrong, did you dowload it from the market? Did you try installing it?

    Hmmm.....Downloaded?

    If you got it from the market you should have no problem. Just go into the market and go to your downloads and unistall and then re-install. Also if you got it from the market you wont find it with file manager. It will be located in the /data/app-private.
