Kernel panic on a Sony Ericsson P800 (Symbian phone)

I had something that I would call a kernel panic on my phone today.

Program closed "Program AppArcServer =Thread Reason code: KERN-EXEC Reason number:3" more specificly.

I did not know a symbian phone could have a kernel panic, but you learn something new every day. I also learned what had caused it - some application that wants me to go and download more (paid) applications - the program relaunched after I had restarted the phone (after removing the battery to be able to shutdown it). No thank you. If I want any applications, I go look for them. It tried the "It is highly recommended that you.." as if there were any real updates. No thank you program, please do not launch ever again unless I ask you to.
