Default Help! Can't Uninstall 3rd Party Applications

Please Login to Remove!

I'm really stuck, I have a couple of 3rd party apps I cannot uninstall (games). I downloaded a game called jewel rumble and disco bowling, don't like either so I am trying to get rid of them both. One was loaded with DM and the other was OTA. Neither show in Advanced / Applications, if I "view modules" they are both there but no way to delete. If I use pocketmac and try to uninstall using DM the blackberry shows connected and flashes a white screen for a split second and nothing. They are both functioning apps with icons and all.

I have tried everything I can think of: battery pulled for several minutes, restarted the computer. However I don't think it's a computer issue since they don't show under applications in the blackberry. It is an 8330 Curve with Verizon. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I know I can just hide the app but I guess it's just a matter of principle.

Unchecking the box on the DM would not solve it?

Thanks but no. I am using pocketmac 1.2 and there are no boxes. You click utilities, uninstall software, select the app and click uninstall. Through experimentation I have figured out it works fine for any app listed under advanced / applications on the blackberry but does not work for these two since they do not show there.

You may need to use javaloader on a windows machine. Or Loader.exe.

After doing much reading I think I have discovered the issue. I believe I was wrong in my original post and all of my issues relate to apps installed using pocketmac. As I have seen numerous post stating you can easily install using pocket mac but rarely uninstall, this could be the issue. Thanks John for the advice, I will try DM on a Windows machine.
