    Widget magically appeared

    Bump

    A widget that says market showed up on a desktop. When I touch it, it goes to a website, Handango, an app website. I've never been there before! How did it get there?

    Please help solve this mystery! Thanks!

    Did you ever find your answer? My Bionic got it this morning. I've never downloaded this, just got up this morning and there it was on my home screen.....

    Have you tried Airpush Detector? It may be from another app you installed.

    Yes, I have. No luck. It doesn't show up in my apps either

    Run airpush detector from the market, it's most likely an app. Usually some free music app.

    I've tried Air Push and nothing comes up. I have searched my apps and it doesn't show up there. I opened it and it's "Handango Apps" It's for a bunch of free apps I've never heard of. I can delete the widget, but would really like to know where it came from and if it's still going to lurk around somewhere in my phone. I'm not very savvy with the tech side of my droid. I'm not rooted, stock, & running 5.9.902.XT875

    This just happened to me after my phone turned off randomly, and restarted two or three times. Now it's on my homescreen.

    Are you all on the stock ROM? Sounds like Verizon is pushing crap ware....

    I'm on stock, but if it was doing that it would have forced it on me when market upgraded, at least I assume. That's when all the other bloatware auto-updated. I cleared all data in my market and it hasn't reappeared.

    I went to a Sense ROM, not stock really, it is the partial Sense 4.0 port over at the Rootzwiki Development Forum... Anyway I think I have it too- purple icon that says "apps". Now that it's my problem, I will be looking into this more.....
