I use Root Explorer, so is there a way to uninstall the "File Manager" app? There's no option to uninstall it.

Run the following from your android-sdk\platform-tools folder in a command prompt:
adb shell
mount -o remount,rw /system
rm /system/app/FileManager.apk
mount -o remount,ro /system
rm -rf /data/data/org.openintents.filemanager/
pm uninstall org.openintents.filemanager
exit
adb reboot

EDIT: Keep in mind, if you flash another RC/Stable/Nightly, it'll be back, and you'll have to repeat these steps again. It's usually just easier to freeze the app via Titanium Backup, or hide it in your launcher.

You can remove it with Root Explorer as well.

That tends to leave files behind though, thus why I recommend the command line to zap the /data/data/ folder and uninstall it from the package manager.
