Default Issues with BB home screen not refreshing.

Please Login to Remove!

I hope someone here is able to help me out with this problem. I've been having an issue for the past few weeks with my Blackberry Pearl the seems to revolve around several third party apps, none of which seem to change the symptoms if they are removed.

What is happening is my Blackberry is freezing anytime I put my password in to unlock the phone after a third party app has displayed something on the home screen. A few examples are BB Smart Alarms Pro, Blackberry Tasks, Pocket Informant, Jivetalk. Anytime they interact with the home screen while my blackberry is locked, the entire device seems to freeze when it is unlocked.

BB Smart Alarms Pro, if an alarm goes off while my device is locked after I put in my password the screen just hangs on the "Please Wait" Screen.

Blackberry Tasks, if I get a reminder to pop up while my device is locked, as soon as I put my password in the device hangs on "Please Wait".

Pocket Informant exactly the same, Hangs as soon as the password is entered.

Jivetalk, if I get a message and the icon changes on the home screen, (the little red star is added to the icon) The same thing, device hangs up on "Please Wait" after I enter my password.

Now I will add this, I can get the device to "unhang" if I hold the Red power button as if I was powering the device off, and as soon as the device starts to power off I can hit any key to cancel and the device is fine until the next interaction.

I have tried battery pulls, deleting the offending apps, upgrading and downgrading my OS, nothing seems to make a difference.

This is a Blackberry Pearl 8110 running OS

Thanks for any help.
