Remove Program but can't remove icon on Programs Screen
I accidentally installed a program a couple of times (I know, not a bright idea), and I was given several icons on the programs screen for each time I loaded the software. I have multiple icons for the same program. How do I remove the extra icons? They are all named software(#). I just need the one.

On the phone, click setting, and then click accessibility. Change the multi key time out to the slowest time. Also, make sure your phone has at least 10 MB free of Program and Storage Memory. To check this, go to task switcher, and click menu. Then click on system info. Check the remaining memory available for Program and Storage memory at the top of the list. (If you have an SD card installed, it will show up below the program and storage memory.) If you want to remove programs to free up memory, click on settings, then click more, then click remove programs (or press the "2" key.)

JAQ3 soft reset Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone
you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal (or soft)
reset of your device clears all active program memory and shuts
down all active programs. This can be useful when the device is running
slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A
soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If
a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will
You can also perform a hard reset (also
known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only
if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a
hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings -
the way it was when you first purchased it. Any programs you
installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on the device
will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other preinstalled programs
To perform a soft reset

You need activesync http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx
ActiveSync’s Tools >Add/Remove Programs
screen lists all the programs that have been installed on your device.
To uninstall a program, uncheck the box next to it and click on OK. To
reinstall a program, click on the empty box next to it and click on OK.
Do not click on the Remove button.
Here's how to do it:
If you used ActiveSync to install a
third-party program to your Windows Mobile device, you can uninstall
the program quickly from your PC.
Make sure your Windows Mobile device is connected to your PC and ActiveSync is running.
the PC’s ActiveSync Window, click on Tools >Add/Remove Programs.
This opens the “Add/Remove Programs” dialog box, which displays a list
of third-party programs you have installed on your device.
To uninstall any of the checked programs, click on the box to uncheck it and hit OK—ActiveSync will do the rest.
Reinstalling programs you’ve uninstalled
Once you’ve installed a program using
ActiveSync, the necessary installation files are saved on your PC. If
you uninstall the program as described above, you can use the
Add/Remove Programs menu to reinstall it at a later time. Uninstalled
programs appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as items with unchecked
boxes. To reinstall it, click on the check box next to it and hit OK.
ActiveSync will reinstall the program automatically.
Note that files in CAB format can be
downloaded directly to a device and installed, so they will not appear
in the Add/Remove Programs list. In addition, some freeware programs
are installed by using ActiveSync’s Explorer to copy the program file
to your device. Those also do not appear in the Add/Remove list.
WARNING: Do not click on the “Remove”
button at the bottom of the Add/Remove Programs screen unless you never
again plan on using the program. This completely removes the necessary
installation files from your PC and you won’t be able to reinstall the
program by checking the box.
did you try normal way of uninstalling the program from settings? presuming you did, so another way can be using any nice program like sktools, memaid. you can manually delete the program folder from program files of device or of memory card & remove registry entries further to wipe it completely. To remove program icons from windows folder. open explorer>open windows folder>start menu>programs> Delete the .Ink file which you want to delete. Thats it. But make sure this last solution will only delete the link file & will not remove the program from the device. good luck
Just disable the settings where it says to turn off the backlight & PDA power after certain minutes and set your standby time (in power battery setting) to 0, then leave your PDA on until it fully drains (usually a week or two).
In activesync under Tools/Add REmove programs you can check the box and click "ok" that will install the program. For the most part it's best to do it one program at a time. Obviously your PDA should be cradled or this. Most programs will re-install fine this way. Some programs though do require you to re-install from the installtion program directly since active sync doesn't pick up some important parts of the program.
The two programs I have that require the special install are:
CLC Journal since it has an outlook component and sets up a sync for the Outlook Journal.
The Stowaway Keyboard driver since it had to ask me what language (the new driver doesn't do this...) The other 30 odd programs I have install straight from active sync.
I have many a time wanted to increase the main memory in my PDA. Sadly, there is no way to upgrade the main memory (unless you are handy at soldering, regulating voltages, and all that fun stuff). I have seen some web sites that upgraded older Palm's main memory but never an IPAQ (ie. Pocket PC).
I suggest removing the older program before installing the newer version. If you have addresses saved in the program, I would first save those to a differnt file so that the uninstall does not delete them.
To uninstall the program from the PDA tap the windows button, tap settings, tap the system tab, tap memory, and finally the remove programs link near the bottom of the screen. A list will appear with all the programs loaded on your PDA. Just tap the one you want and then tap remove.
When you try to remove certain programs on the PDA the following message may appear and in some cases the program will remain no matter how many times you try to remove it:
Due to the nature of the PDA and the fact that the operating system is resident in memory at all times, some .DLL files cannot be stopped and removed. For example, the program below uses a .DLL file to run a program on the Start screen and is therefore always running.
The only way around this is to rename the file via Active Sync.
In Active Sync on the computer, click on Explore. You may have to wait a short while until Mobile Device is displayed, then follow the program file to where the uninstall file is located, i.e. \Program Files\OmegaOne\BattPack\BatBar.dll.
If you try and delete the .DLL file the following message will appear because the file is in use at the time:
Select BattBar.dll file and rename this, making sure the file format has the .*** suffix and is different from any other valid format, for example, do not choose .jpeg / .mpeg. In this case we have renamed the file Aaa.aaa.
Once the file is renamed and saved, remove the PDA and soft reset. The program linked to the .DLL will no longer be present on the PDA.
You can now re-dock the PDA, synchronise and go back to Remove Programs and successfully delete the file.
