The reason this app is still appearing is because you deleted it from DLs. You may have removed the icon but it will always re-appear on re-boot or if you change themes. Launcher icons (ie. LaunchPad & popups from Versatools). You can never get rid of them! Its always best to remove any app utilizing device memory from the options/application field. The icon will not remove from your device. It is not functioning, however the modules remain in the registry. Just hide it or create a "junk" folder and let it reside in there.

I wouldn't worry about any drainage or adverse affect on your device. I have an app called "What's Running." It shows 69 apps currently running/waiting (18% of 370 apps on phone). My switch application screen only shows proprietory apps and dedicated app fields. Much of the stuff runs in the background. Your problem is only a blemish of the deleted app.

Of course you could security wipe the device, but that would only occur if you inherited a null exception/java script exception like I did a few days ago with the "who asked for it" upgrade, right before I started to re-install everything on my Verizon-issued "new 9550.

I would have given anything to have "your icon problem." Smile
