    I have an icon in the top left of my Samsung Mega that looks like a volume dial on a radio in my status bar. I searched everywhere, unintalled loads of junk but not found anything that seems to remove it or affects it.

    I have tried Air Push and unistalled the pplications that it identified had ad pusshy stuff, but still no change.

    I tried holding my fat finger on it but nothing happens!

    I searched through all my apps to see if they had a similar kind of icon but nothing happens.

    Any ideas ??

    How does it look if you pull down the notification bar?
    ... then you'd have a long press on it for to see which app caused it :)

    Is it the facial recognition symbol? I keeps your phone from sleeping while viewing the screen. ;)

    No it's on the top left next door to the other app notifications.:( It doesn't seem to have any connection to anything, also it is always there, nothing seems to remove it. even if i restart the phone.

    Does anybody know if I can restart the phone in "Safe mode" and confirm each additional service app that starts up on the phone.

    I'm getting paranoid that somethings loggin my everymove now.:D

    Install and run 'Notification History', then restart the phone and then look on Notification History's log for the apps that have send notifications.

    I have finally found out it is the Powerful Control application from Farproc...

    stupidly though, I thought the Powerful Contol controls in the notification where system tools and not part of the notification so never realised they were connected !(doh)
