    I would suggest that you use an app like Root. Explorer to rename the apps from *.apk to *.bak. prior to the change just hit the button in the top right corner to change the file to rw and then change it back to ro after the change.

    I created a new folder and moved all of the unwanted apps there.

    we all have different methods. I prefer getting titanium backup premium version and just freezing the apps.
