Default Question about the "Switch Application" section on my Storm

Please Login to Remove!

When I go to the Switch Application section the following appears, "Home, BB Messaging, Phone, Browser, Messages, and APPLICATION CENTER." I realize that the first 5 are there by default but I cannot get rid of the application center part. When I click on it through the "Switch Application" part, nothing happens at all. It doesnt even redirect me there. Ive tried clicking the App Center and clicking close but that doesnt work. Is there anyway I can get rid of it, its really annoying.

Have you tried to pull the battery out?

Pull the battery with the device still powered on. Leave the battery out for 30 seconds, reinsert the battery and test.

I agree, sounds like a Battery Pull is necessary on this one.

There are numerous threads about this very subject...

Open up the Application Center application, hit the menu button and change the option for "Auto Refresh" (to off I think, I don't have it installed to check).

This stops it from running. You can also delete the app altogether I think (I did, but I don't use any of the apps which were listed in it and had already uninstalled them).

It may take a restart after changing that refresh option.

Vertioch: Thank you very much. That worked for me. It was very annoying having that on there when I would check to see what apps were running when that one technically wasnt. I really do appreciate your help and thanks again
