    I have The Hobbit and DRIOD_APPS installed on my andriod Samsung Galaxy S 2. I did not install them and they don't show on the un-installer apps you can get.

    I havn't openned them as I dont know what they are or where they came from.

    Does anyone know how I can isolate these and get rid of them?

    Hi Predo, and welcome to AF :)

    Are they shortcuts that have just appeared on your desktop, but don't show in the app drawer or manage applications menu?

    If so, you may have installed an app that uses push advertising - there's a sticky thread about this in the this forum. Install Addons Detector and scan for apps using push advertising - if you find one, uninstall it and delete these shortcuts and you won't see them again (if you remove the shortcuts but leave the culprit in place they, or something else, will return).

    If nothing is using push ads, please give us as much info as you can on these things, eg where you see them.
