Default Disappearing App World Icon

I've removed the apps, but when I try to delete the icons, it prompts that icons will be removed on next reboot. After the reboot, App World is uninstalled and the program icons I was trying to delete are still showing up. Weird. Hopefully they'll fix this soon. Annoying to have to keep reinstalling App World.
This happened to me a couple of times before as well. The trick is to delete apps (or archives) from within App World ( App World > My World > ...). If you just go to the BlackBerry menu and try to delete something it will also remove the icon for the App World (I say icon, because I have read other posts that indicate that App World itself is not uninstalled, that the bug simply removes the icon). A reinstall of App World will bring it all back to normal.

Try deleting apps from within App World and see if that makes a difference for you. It has for me.
