I have a PDA with Windows Mobile 2003 installed on it. It comes with two games: Jawbreaker and Solitaire.

I'd like to permanently remove these games from my device. Using ActiveSync, I found the following files in the Windows folder. (There are some for Solitaire too)

Jawbreaker Files

These are located in the IPSM (Persistent Storage Memory) so any problems caused by deleting them wouldn't be fixable by a cold boot.

Is it safe to delete these files and will this remove the games from the system?

  • @VitorCanova My understanding from Area 51 was that this would cover Windows Mobile, and Windows Phone powered devices – Rowland Shaw Apr 25 '12 at 16:35

    @VitorCanova In fact, the FAQ does say Windows Mobile is on topic – Rowland Shaw Apr 25 '12 at 16:36

    @RowlandShaw Your are completely right. I made a mistake. Sorry. Undo DownVote. – Vitor Canova Apr 25 '12 at 17:49
  • @VitorCanova Windows Mobile seems to be offtopic here meta.windowsphone.stackexchange.com/questions/13/… – user131 Apr 27 '12 at 17:26

When in doubt, just rename them first, adding _ to there extension or something similar.

Of course, this would suppose you still can obtain access to the device in case of failure. But none of these are required for you to reboot the device and/or launch ActiveSync, so I don't really see a problem.
