    Hi,

    I have a slighhtly weird problem, my 8 GB Iod touch was working fine until a few days ago when my computer had a problem which led to me having to reinstall Windows. So I downloaded ITunes again and thought it was all OK (The device thought it was a new computer but that was still only the 2nd of the max 5 machine authorizations you get), but now I find that, although I can add things to the touch OK, I cant delete anything. If I delete an app I no longer want from within ITunes for Example, and Sync, the app will still be there on the Touch after Snycing. Whats the way around this, ie, I guess what I am asking is, how to get things correctly up and running properly when using a new computer...

    Thanks in advance for any constructive advice.

    Plug in your device. Then in iTunes select your device and click applications and uncheck the ones you dont want

    hold down the app and it will wiggle and have an x in the top left corner and click it
    then say yes i want to delete from device then there you go its gone from device and you can still sync them back on
