    I did a search but couldn't find anyone having a similar problem.

    I downloaded an imagine off Google picasa, it was successful, I cleared it, now every day the icon will appear with the same file name only a different time. I clear it every time I see it and every day it reappears.

    Any ideas on why this happens?

    Thanks in advance

    No I haven't, cuz I kinda want to keep the image. I'll delete it now to test it though.

    I had a new email notification that would never go away even though there was no new mail. I ended up powering off the Droid and pulling the battery for a few minutes. Once I brought it back up, I never saw the notification again.
  7. Mine does this too. It notifies me about a download that I completed days ago. It'll pop up every few minutes no matter how many times I clear it. And hard resetting the phone doesn't make a difference. This kind of glitch is ridiculous and unforgiveable.

    You have to clear the download within the browser app. :)

    Open up the browser>Menu key>More>Downloads>Menu Key> then select "clear list" this should remove it from ur notifications.

    Before trashing the Droid for this problem starts, what I have noticed is that I had the same problem with another app I downloaded. What I found was that Panda Home was causing it. I uninstalled panda and installed the app. Then I reinstalled Panda. Problem never returned.

    Panda is still buggy. I still see some black screens.. Occasional force close with some apps. I have found that a phone reset every few days is needed with this app to keep thing running smooth. This is not a device issue.

    Keep in mind, even if you are not running Panda home, there may be another application causing this issue. I would uninstall the apps one at a time until the issue is resolved

    You'll have your answer then.

    Touch the toolbar where the download notification is and drag it down, this will open a menu where you can "clear list" or the notification. Once your finished, touch at the bottom of the menu and drag up to close it.
    The notification should be gone. Enjoy.

    i have this problem whenever I receive multiple emails simultaneously the counter won't ever go down to 0....I downloaded a gmial inbox only link and even though the app is kinda terrible, it does show me the hidden emails that were causing the "new email" counter to stay at 1 or 2.

    with that information given, it would make me think that you had downloaded perhaps more then 1 item at a time or interrupted the download perhaps.

    this might have caused a glitch. Start going through every file that is associated with the download and open and close it.....eventually you'll find the one that's causing the phone to think it's unread.

    Sportstap will give me a notification when one of my local teams is playing, but it will not go away when the game is over. Does anyone know how to make it disappear.

    I have tried this but unlike the other "clear lists" this one is not highlighted hence it will not clear do you have another suggestion?

    Well, I had the same problem as others. I'd downloaded some apps and a few docs. I'd deleted all of 'em and also cleared the download list. I believe I'd cleared the notification list at least a million times. But they'd still reappear. Everytime I'd start the Market app or the browser or maybe anything that uses internet, the notifications would appear.
    Finally, I went to Settings-> Manage Applications-> All-> and started clicking on each app and then clear data. However, the notifications wouldn't go until I went to Download Manager and clicked clear data.
    VOILA! Notifications gone for good. :D

    Click on thanks if this solved your query
