    I have Uninstall several apps for ex city id. The icons are still on the menu and their processes are auto starting in the backround. But when I search for them in applications the are not listed. Also, many programs are running even though o have disabled them . What can I do?

    How did you uninstall them? How did you originally install them?

    CityID is installed in ROM and can not be removed without root access.

    You have the Incredible, so I am pretty sure that was installed from the Market, I dont believe that came from VZW. Unless of course it came with a recent OTA update, then you would need root access to remove it.

    Most def yes!
    Go to the market and download an app called Uninstaller, it will give you a list of all the apps you can uninstall without root access. I use it, its much easier (for me) to use that to uninstall than go to settings, applications, manage apps, find the app, click on it, then hit uninstall.
