    This is the Google Galaxy Nexus phone forum. You might have more luck posting in the Nexus 7 forums.

    Have you installed Avast for android?
    Update Agent may have came from Avast installation, or when Avast asks you to download it for anti-theft protection.
    The green icon might be caused by icon corruption.

    Yup, Was Avast in my case.
    Launch the Avast App, Select 'Setting' (top-right button)
    Scroll all the way to the bottom and select 'avast! Anti-Theft removal wizard'.
    'Fix Issue' will remove the 'Update Agent' if it is installed.
