    I went to download an app, and evidently selected the wrong one (it had a similar name, but wasn't the one I was looking for).

    I uninstalled the unintended app. Then, a day later, it shows up as "pending" in my apps list. After it shows pending for a few days, it installs. I uninstall it, and it repeats.

    I can't get rid of this thing.

    I have been through a few OS updates since this happened, and it's still there, so I don't know that a hard reset is going to help.

    How can I get rid of this thing?

    hard reset is the way to go but a soft reset might fix it as well :)

    thanks - soft reset hasn't cleared it. Might have to try a hard reset tonight - takes so long, I don't have time for that during the day.

    If I hard reset, and restore from backup, do you think it will still be there?
