    There are quite a few apps that are pre-installed and some that have been installed, all by Vizio, later (aka: bloatware), all can't be removed / deleted from the "Home" list or from settings>applications>delete.
    I wouldn't mind so much if they were out of sight, out of mind in the apps list & my choice to have @ home. But for me it's a cluttered Home page.
    Does it take rooting to get to them? I would like it if there were another way.
    Any suggestions?

    I hate that too. I made all the apps I want to see a favorite app so it is listed at the top. That way I don't have to see them much.

    I was hoping for Jellybean-like application options. In JB, you can choose to disable individual apps. If you disable, they no longer appear in the drawer and do not run at all. Rooting would allow us to remove the junk or freeze them with Titanium Backup.
