Default text message icon will not disappear even though I read message?

I have only been having this problem since last night, and have tried a lot of things from resetting the phone, to taking out battery, and I have looked through the settings probably a dozen times.

When I receive a text message, my "Messaging" icon at the bottom of the screen will display the number of new messages in bold and red color. Well, I go in and read the message, but even though I have, that number notification will NOT go away. It only goes away if I turn my phone off and back on...

What is the deal with this? It has only been doing it since last night, and I have had the phone for a few months without it ever doing it before. Up until this time, when I have a new message, if I read it, the notification would instantly disappear.

(This is NOT the text notification from the actual notification bar. This is the notification that appears on the actual "Message" icon on your home screen)

Can anyone help me with this? I know it is not THAT big of a deal, but it is really annoying in my opinion.

That's not part of ICS but a feature of TouchWiz. Try going into the TouchWiz settings and turn it off (I haven't run TouchWiz in a while so I don't remember where that setting is). Then reboot your phone and turn it back on. See if that fixes it.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
