you can use the app manager or just highlight the program and press c - it's the same thing. The expired certificate thing indicates that the app has been around for a while and the 6 month or 1 year certificate it was signed with has run out. You can work around this by simply changing the date on your phone (try 6 months then 1 year). Install and just change back to current date. The app will continue working.

yeah that's what i do. just find the app in the folder, press the C button, and it uninstalls the app.

you mean just the normal phone date setting? the date that shows on the front of the phone? so change date before installing, install, and then change date back?

cheers guys

yes expired cert errors are easily solved by just changing the date in settings. go back 6 months. sometimes you gotta try different dates until you find the one that the software was written during that period.
