    Welcome to Android Central! Which app, and from where are you installing it? The Play Store, or somewhere else?

    And are you seeing the green Andy in the app drawer, the homescreen or both? (An app can uninstall improperly, leaving the icon on the homescreen, but at the next restart that becomes the green Andy icon. If you're on Pie [I don't remember if it appeared in Oreo], long-press the icon on the homescreen and uninstall - again.)

    If worst comes to worst, you may have to back the phone up (see Backing up an Android Device), do a factory reset, then restore everything. (Just don't back up the app that's giving you problems - install it clean from the Play Store..)
