Thanks again for all the help. I am back today, and slightly more literate. Though never technically inclined.
I want to speed up my device. I have/do:
I have used the App Loader to remove language packs.
I do ALT+lglg and clear the log.
I clear the browser/other caches.
I have no pics or vids currently stored on device or card (new phone).
I xxx8216;closexxx8217; rather than back out of apps/browser.

Without installing a new OS I would like to:
*Remove BB sample content/video. Under Options>Applications I do see the sample content but don't get an option to delete when I hit Menu.
*Remove pre-loaded themes. I have found instructions for doing this: Program Files>Common Files>RIM>Shared Files>Loader files>OS File>Java. I understand this, my problem is that when I open the RIM file, there is no folder for Shared, thus I cannot complete the task strand. Am I missing something? (obviously)
*Remove BB help - it does not allow me to do so from Options>Applications; again no delete option available.

? Must I install the device OS to my pc in order to get greater functionality from the App Loader? I used it last night to sucessfully remove language packs. But I was reading in forum a post that taught how to remove erroneous data/files. A Mod had put up some screen shots, and a poster mentioned that he did not see those options in his own App Loader. A Mod posted back that "Some of the functions and programs you are seeing in Jim's list only show up in Application Loader after you've installed your device's OS on your PC. You have to install the OS on your PC before you can remove those functions from your BB" SHOULD I DO THIS?

? How do you BB guru's feel about speed-up apps like BerryJoose, etc? Worth it?

Thanks again, you all have been really great. I sincerely appreesh!
