Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This is one of the most common issue with Sony Ericsson phones, the reason behind this is the software/firmware malfunctioning, and you have to manually flash the firmware of your Phone, its easy as 123, all you need is the USB Data cable of your phone (That comes with a new piece). If you have it just goto the link I've provided below, there you will find the application download as well as the Guide on how to do this update, also read the "Before you begin" section there.
This will definitely solve the issue, as I've had customers with this problem as it was resolved by a firmware update.
If you are having any problems/questions, do ask me, I'm here to Help.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

P.S; K800i Software Update

Cant Uninstall Applications via Manager?

When you cant uninstall an application(most of the time Java games) using the Manager function of the phone, then do this;

1. Install FExplorer.

2. Launch it and goto the path/folder of the Application. I'm assuming you have install it to the MMC so the path would be something like,


and you will see lots of folders in there that is only labelled by numbers(for Java games/apps) or the name of the application. Go though them one by one. Open the text file in that folder to exactly know the name of the application in that particular folder if you dont see any icons or familiar name.

3. Then if its the correct folder, "move-out" of the folder, click on Options>File>Delete.

4. Then goto the Manager to uninstall it if its still listed.

5. Reboot.

Folders take too long to open


let us try some troubleshooting steps, hope they will work.....................

i) Click on start button------>Select the option Control Panel ------>Select Printers and Other Hardware--->

  ----->Select Mouse----->Mouse Properties window appear-----> highlight or click Buttons Tab on the top 

  -----> locate Double Click speed(in middle) and try move slide bar towards extreme right(towards Fast),

         now click apply and ok.....see the difference, if not try next one...........

ii) How much is ur RAM capacity(i would suggest > 1 GB RAM), if ur RAM something like 512 or 256     MB then you have to upgrade it to 1GB since you may face these problem with less RAM.....
   if you are running more no of application on a lower RAM it will take some time open any                  application or even something like opening a folder......

   if you have good of RAM, then try the next step...

iv) you can even apply single click option to make folders open faster 

    Open My Computer ------> Select Tools option on top-----> Select Folder option ----> Select General Tab------> check single-click to open an item and then click apply and ok......

iii) sometimes it may be due to virus,spyware present in ur system so, i would suggest to install a good antrivirus, spyware software such as Bit Defender, Norton, AVG,......

For my k800i the games and applications folders will not open


Back up everything and master reset your phone. That should solve the problem. If not, then you need to flash the firmware of the phone (you can use SEUS - Sony Ericsson Update Service).
