We are both right. I blamed the unknown contact list on Gmail. You said that Gmail was running in the background.
Using your tip from thread #19, I open DM to "delete" the address book items. I researched all other data items and found "Enhanced Gmail Plug-In". Ah! Ha! that was it, I thought. I deleted it and carefully made sure that Sync did not put the plug back and made a new backup of everthing and even verified to make sure that the plug was gone.
Then after running BB - NOOOO! The plug came back. So it is running somewhere else. I could not find it.
So I did some more research and found other people with the same issue. You said to delete it. May I ask you how?
