Default What is this and how do I delete it? (Android app)



this showed up yesterday. I thought it might have come with a game (Pool Bar HD being installed around the same time, along with Angry Birds, and Fruit Ninja).

I can't uninstall it. If I do it crashes the launcher, and then reboots into the last launched app.
if I click it, it opens the web browser to a page full of ads for games.
it does not show up in my apps screen, or in settings.
I've run virus and malware scans, it never registers.
I've used apps dedicated to deleting apps...no luck.

How Do I Get rid of it?!

Am rooted.
Didn't show up in task list, so can't force stop.
Didn't show up in applications folder.

Somewhere, between running an antivirus and rebooting it finally let me delete it without crashing the launcher. Thanks guys!

Folks complain about Apple's stringent app approval standards, but stuff like this sucks. Google needs to get better at that. Unacceptable.

Let's overact a little more...

So, can you see it in titanium backup? If you press and hold the icon, depending on your rom, some times you can go directly to App info from there to uninstall.

If you do get to the point you can uninstall:

Force Stop
Clear Cache
Clear Data
Then Uninstall
Reboot to recovery, Wipe Dalvik and Cache

App's data can still cause issues if not wiped before uninstalling.

as far as I can tell, it was a web shortcut, not a full app. SOMETHING was adding it though. Also curious why deleting it crashing the launcher.

Either way, gone now. I may have neglected to clear app data / cache before uninstalling an app though.
