How to delete items from the Default Application Pool?

Running IIS 6 on WS03

When I launch IIS Manager and expand Application Pools >> DefaultAppPool,
there are some Default Applications, and also a bunch of stuff that is
residue from practice web applications created from Visual Studio.Net:
WebApplication1, WebApplicationi2, etc.

How do I delete this stuff (the defunct WebApplication1, etc) and why is it
still there?

Thanks in Advance.

If the application roots (virtual directories configured to be an application) created for the .Net applications are still set to be Application Roots they have to be housed in an Application Pool.

The applications in the Application pool should list the directory they are for.

Find the directory, bring up the properties and click the Remove button in the Application settings.

This should remove the applciation root and the entry for that application should also disappear from the Application pool.

What happens if their directories are gone and they are left as residue in the pool.
Metabase Explorer can get rid of it. I solved it.
