    I downloaded a free game - N.O.V.A. - and now I cannot unload it. What can I do? I never ran it because when I started it up I got a message warning me that it was potentially dangerous. I am a newbie to android OS. Thanks for any advice.

    Using the built in methods on the device.Is there some other way? Professionally I am an applications programmer and so I am very comfortable around PCs, but as I said I'm a me newbie to android. I've had it about one week and living out, but I have a lot to learn... And, thanks for your interest!
