Default (Solved) Strange "FREE APPS" Application on my phone

So this morning I checked my phone and I saw an application called "free apps" on my phone. Its not listed on my applicatiions list and I used avast and the pre loaded anti virus and neither came up with anything in a scan. I clicked on it and I wasn't connected to wifi but it took me to a webpage that didn't load due to wifi. Ive only installed well known apps from the android market, is this thing a virus?? How do I get rid of it?????

Use titanium backup to remove it

Idk if it was because all it was is it just took me to handangos list of their own free selection of apps which since handango is a real site, I doubt its malware now. But I did a hard reset and ill see which app I downlloaded brought this along.

Plus that means it was just a shortcut link, that's why it wasn't on my applications list.
