    Hoping someone has encountered and solved this. I know that T-Mobile added Avast as part of the bloatware on our GN2. I have Handcent installed and Avast does not want Handcent installed on the same device. I have never activated Avast, but about every week or so Avast throws a notification asking me to uninstall Handcent, which of course I dismiss, but it keeps coming back. I would uninstall or disable Avast (I dont want to use it) but I cant find it. It's not in the app tray. when i go to manage applications it's not under any of the three tabs.

    Anyone else having this issue? Could it have some other process name?

    Help, I am tired of being awaken at o'dark hundred by a notification for an application I am not even running.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried going to Settings>Application Manager>"All">Avast, and see if you can uninstall it from there?

    Cuda, yes I did, it's not there, which is really strange. It's like I somehow deleted the app, but it's still there. I have done several battery pulls, it keeps coming back, yet I cant find it on the phone.

    Why do you say T-mobile added Avast? I see no indication of it. Could it be a defect in Handcent?

    I had actually read on XDA that T-Mobile added it. I do remember seeing it as an app on day 1 (i have never used it). I thought I deleted it. but about once a week or so, i do get a notification saying it wants me to delete handcent. Next time it shows up, I will take a screenshot, maybe I am reading it wrong.
