    I use Shut App to close apps running in the background. Each time it closes an app with the attached icon. I have been trying unsuccessfully to find out what it is and uninstall it ( unless it is needed). Help please... Thanks!

    shut App in itself is not needed at all.

    I would suggest you uninstall it, and the strange icon will most likely go away.

    I just do a 'close all' if I want to get rid of stuff in the 'recent list'

    I turn off DATA and WiFi when the screen is locked, and that stops all activity that I don't want.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not likely for a few reasons, the main one being that I have Shut App running on two phones and that particular app is only running on one of the phones.

    It helps to say which phone you have at the very least. [​IMG]

    There's your rogue app.

    No problem, I knew immediately from years of dealing with that and more Samsung bloat.... It's etched into my mind lol
