I just got my BB last night, so I'm very new to this, but I did the update on the BB App World, and there were some apps that I did not want (such as Yahoo Messenger) that it kept coming up that there was an update available for... so I uninstalled those apps... but the Black Berry App World notification keeps coming up saying that there are updates available for those apps. Do I HAVE to reinstall and update them, even if I don't want to ever use them? It's annoying that it shows up with my new messages all the time.
Sorry if these are stupid questions, only had the BB for less than a day!
Update* I reinstalled the apps, and the notifications are still there... and I click on them, and updating isn't an option anymore... just Reviews, Recommend, & Screenshots... I can't get rid of it!

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
From your post, I can't quite tell where this notification is coming up. If it's on your homescreen (at the top, where the VM, new message, etc. notifications show), then the resolution will be different. Check this image for what that notification will look like:
If it is indeed that one, then you need to find, in your Messages, a message from AppWorld -- deal with it (read, delete, etc.) and the notification should go away. If you can't find the messages, then try a search:
However, if the notification is within MyWorld itself, then the resolution might be different. It's actually quite odd for AppWorld to continue to notify for uninstalled apps...are they actually in the uninstalled section of MyWorld? In any event, try this clearing the AppWorld application cache:
1. Open App World
2. Go to My World
3a. For keyboard-based BB's -- Hold down the ALT key and then press, in sequence R, then S, then T
3b. For Storm/Pearl -- Hold the num-lock (!?123) button so it locks and then press, in sequence 3, then 4, then (
4. If your BB locks after issuing the cache clear, perform a battery pull reboot
5. Return to AppWorld. Log into MyWorld (if applicable) and try again.
Hopefully it'll work for you! Good luck and let us know!

Just wanted to say thank you SO much. I have been wanting to get rid of that **bleep** update symbol telling me to update programs I'd deleted. The top solution worked perfect for me. (I'm running OS6 and the symbol was at the top on the home screen)
You've made me very happy.

As soon as i open my app world, it refreshes and puts the cleared (uninstalled) items back into the list of uninstalled items. I also had the prob. However if you go look at the app in app world and then just exit without re-installing or updating, the reminder diassappers. But its still the hassle factor that frustratyes me. Good luck
