    Saw this on Tuesday and just deleted the notification (was stating that my phone was running slow)- fortunatley there is a way to delete the message without following antything. Just got another one though (this one is for local singles). Thing is, I don't know where this message is coming from! There are no new messages or emails to speak of, just this green star in the notification area. I'm not getting a warm fuzzy about opening this message to figure anything out about it.

    Green Star

    I also have this issue. Anyone know if this is part of the 2.2.3 update. Is it spam inserted into the OS by Motorola?

    Sounds like an ad-ware app... might want to audit the stuff you've installed.

    Certain apps now advertise in your notification bar. There is an app in the market to opt out.

    The name of the crap using software is airpush. You can find apps in the market to detect and opt out of this

    Green Star - Airpush

    I just came across a Green Airpush Star ad that the Airpush Detector didn't locate.

    I went to the market and downloaded the Airpush Opt Out program, as well as an Airpush blocker (both rated four stars). They so far seem to work on my Droid Razr.
