    Is this true?

    Advertisement



    Hi all.
    There is a piece of software whose name I won't mention because it sliped my mind at this time and because I'm not doing it publicity for free Anyway, they say that the program completelly uninstalls software that live modules left behind after going through the standard adv. options -> applications.

    Is it true that uninstalled BB software leaves behind stuff that slow the handheld down like windows' software leaves, say .dlls and registry entries? Any way to avoid that without spending $ for that program?

    Thanks!

    I don't know about a program to uninstall, but a new install is easy enough. Then back-up that new instal and revert to it as needed. My .02

    No, programs shouldn't be leaving anything behind. I have never had any issues with that

    That's what I thought. Now, I'm not saying that piece of software is a scam... but...
    The BB even asks to be rebooted if a module is in use, so I'd say no part of a program is left behind.
    Regards.

    BB dont run the same kind of reg. and dll as windows.
    from my experience, BB erase everything when you tell them too...
    and dont leave any trace after you do a battery pull

    Yeah I have always been curious about why we would need a third party app to delete modules left over from unistalling (and why do modules stay left over anyways?)

    If an aftermarket program is used repeatedly and then deleted, it leaves a file handle, but I don't know if you'd call it a "module" and you definately don't need another ap to release it. All you have to do is remove power. Many Blackberry aps, on the other hand, when deleted, might still be on the device with only their menu access removed. On the one hand, if you delete unwanted applications like Memos or Tasks, the amount of available memory increases do you'd think they're gone. But on the other hand, there are some items that stay resident somewhere on the Berry even though they are "deleted". For example, just for kicks, go into the "Pictures" icon (or "Media" if you run OS 4.2+) and find the pre-installed pictures, like the desert arch, dolphins, etc. Delete them, and you'll see your free memory increase a little bit. You'd think they are gone - you deleted them, they are no longer available through the Pictures menu, and available memory increased. Then back up your device, and do a wipe -- after the device starts back up, the pictures you just deleted come back! So they never really were deleted at all. So when a BlackBerry application is deleted, how much of it really is . . .deleted? . . . Hmmmm . . .
