    The closest thing to malware on my phone is clearly the app store.
    It frequently opens when I use other apps, then has to be manually closed to prevent battery drain. And Amazon obviously uses it for gathering information.
    I've noticed that there's no simple way to uninstall it. Has anyone tried?

    Also, can BBM be uninstalled? I never use it, and was just thinking that it would create considerable free space to get rid of it.

    You can delete it temporarily but it appears when you reboot.

    I don't have any issues with the appstore, although the apps are lagging all the time, native apps are far better.

    The answer is no as far as I can tell. Someone else asked this question so I went to my Chrome extention side loading tool and noticed that these apps are greyed out and not allowed to be uninstalled.

    Just deny Amazon permissions from the very beginning. Then it won't ever run. BBM can be disabled in parental controls as well.

    OK. Assuming I'm past the very beginning, since I already have it loaded and running, what do you suggest?

    I guess your only choice would be to wipe and reflash the device... :-( Not sure though.

    It's like forgetting about malware that has made it onto my laptop. Every so often I look and find that the App Store is open and running, even if I have purposely closed it.

    Parental Controls worked nicely to get rid of BBM.
    Unfortunately, all of my personaluized desktop settings were undone when I turned on parental controls. That can be fixed though.

    There are a bunch of threads about this already and people have found a few solutions/workarounds.
    I would check out this thread: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...e-bb10-972935/
    That thread has a few links to other threads in it too describing different methods.
