    It's just an icon, the app itself is not installed (like the IM, Facebook & Filcr icons). Just hide the icon.

    I'm sure just the icon is causing that on his desktop to pop up when he plugs the phone in to the computer... *shakes head*

    You need to look at your media card. There is probably an autorun file that points to a slacker app for automatic caching of stations. Just removing the autorun file will do the trick, but you might as well get rid of the slacker app too

    Let's not waste a perfectly good thread now. Why did it suck? I go back and forth between this and Pandora. Mostly using Slacker for the variety and Pandora in the gym because of it's learning ability.

    Is there something else out there? FWIW, I love the trance station on Slacker.

    I had this same problem on my 8330. I just dealt with it since i didn't connect to my comp much.

    IMO Pandora is better than Slacker

    Ah, that makes sense. I rarely skip. I like all kinds of music, but I can't dance...so it's a wash.

    I think it is due to what's installed on your media card. If you have a Slacker folder there, just delete it, and it should be resolved.

    Duh! I should learn how to read! Sorry, I totally messed up missing the fact you installed it. My bad.

    If you've deleted the app & it no longer shows in Options/Advanced Options/Applications the just delete the "autorun" & "slacker" files manually.

    It created these files for me when I chose to cache a station and they'll keep being created if you install the app again.

    Thanks for pointing out my screw-up danoh. But after uninstalling it, I "think" only the icon is pushed to you.
