    What are we supposed to do about applications that won't uninstall? I'm having trouble getting "Screen Off and Lock" off of my xoom.

    thanks

    Try to force stop and clear it's data first. (settings > applications > manage applications > all)

    According to the Android Market page, to uninstall:

    NOTE: To un-install, go Settings, Locations & Security, Select Device Administrators and disable the ScreenOff App

    Most excellent.....remember, if you give an app permission to run as the Administrator of your Android device you will not be able to uninstall that app until you disable administrator priviledges by using the directions found in this post. Most excellent & thank you!

    I think that says it all?

    This does not work - there are no Device Administrations listed under this section at all on my device, its completely blank, and still I have apps with greyed out UNINSTALL buttons.

    The solution above was for a particular app. What are you trying to remove?

    I registered just to say thank you, because even after rooting my device *tripple Nkt* there are some annoying applications I still couldn't get rid of. Man (or woman, hopefully) you are a genius!!!
