anyone know of an program uninstaller...there's a program that i've uninstalled/removed from my phone, but there's still icons and other things sitting in some of the directories of my phone. i remember seeing something around here in the wizard or kaiser forum. i've searched for removal, remover and uninstall/uninstaller but i can't find a thing. even tried downloads.com since they have a lot of pocketpc apps.
thanx in advance

PS
those that are quick to jump the gun, "Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Remove Programs" is not removing the icon....

Why can't you manually delete these icons if they don't point to anything?

program shortcuts in the start\programs menu are all from the windows folder:
\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

If the uninstaller doesn't remove the shortcut from that folder, you can delete it yourself.
