    I delete the icon but when i check i cant uninstall as it doesnt show as being installed.

    I never installed it and within minutes of me deleting the icon its back again.

    Did you look in your app manager to see if that app exists?

    I'm not familiar with it, but I did find this thread mentioning this seems to be a new/developing issue for people in the Philippines (assuming it's the same app/icon as you). Give it a look and out may give you some additional leads to go on.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    We'll need more information to offer better advice.

    What device do you have?

    Did you look in your app drawer or your in the app list in your settings menu?

    Did you enable "show system apps" when looking your app list in the settings menu?

    Have you installed any apps from places other than the Play Store, Amazon App Store or your manufacturer's App Store?

    What happens if you try to open the app or have you tried to open the app?

    Is your device rooted or modified in any way?

    Did this just suddenly show up, has it been on the device the whole time, did you buy the device new, used or refurbished?

    If you press and hold the icon do you get an (i), lower case I in a circle, that you can click on to try and get to the apps page on the device?

    The more you tell us the better we can help.

    Awesome, glad you found a solution. I don't think this is the first time I've seen TouchPal causing problems either.

    Welcome to Android Central! I actually made you the owner of the original guest post, thinking you had posted it, and before I realized that belodion had merged the threads. Oh well, no harm no foul.

    TouchPal is notorious for adware and possibly worse. I recall that some phones have this preinstalled as the default keyboard, which is terrible. I agree that you should Disable it, but make sure you have another keyboard app installed first. Otherwise, you might get stuck being unable to enter some important piece of information, like the PIN/password on the lockscreen.
