Default Uninstalled Apps and Sync

Hi,

I was hoping someone might be able to advise me a bit on two subjects.

The first is concerning preinstalled apps, such as Amazon MP3. I don't seem to have the option to uninstall these apps, nor am I sure which of the apps on there are required by processes on the phone.

The second is to do with sync. I have taken a look at the weather, stocks, etc and they don't have a 'manual' option. I don't want these items to sync, but I don't seem to have anyway of stopping them. I've tried turning off the background sync option, but then when I use other programs it says that it's required (such as Market - which I can't download from at the moment anyway due to the issues mentioned elsewhere).

I'm new to Android, as you can tell, so any advice would be great.

U can stop the weather sync in Settings/Accounts.
Amazon is part of the operating system (on HTC). You can uninstall it after root.

For stocks, news and weather go:

Settings/
Accounts & Sync/
Select Stocks/
Uncheck Sync Stocks

Voila, it won't sync. Do the same with news and weather. Hope it helps!
