    I had the same thing happen, no matter what I did, the icon did not go away. I got so annoyed with it that I ended up uninstalling app world. Extreme, I know but I hate no being able to control what's on my screen... Hopefully some one will have an answer as to how to get rid of the icon, because I would like to re-install app world.

    If you go to your main messages folder it will show up there and you can make it go away.

    I saw nothing as a new message in messages when the icon was displayed with a "2" next to it as if two new updates were available

    Hmm, not really sure what to say then. When it showed up on my blackberry, I found the updates in the main messages folder and I was able to clear them out there. If they aren't showing up there then I am not sure. I am sure you are looking in the right place but you have to make sure you are looking in the main messages folder and not a specific mail folder. If you are in a specific mail folder and hit m on the keyboard it will take you to the main message folder.

    The App World update notifications show up in ONE of your message folders...
    I'm not too sure WHICH one, however.

    Just go to "View Folder", and go through them all until you find the unchecked notifications.
    Clear them, and the icon will go away.

    Exactly what I did. Its in one of your Messages folder. Particularly one named 'Messages' Scroll down, you will find the little termite there.

    Hey,

    Even after you go into "appworld" and update the application that needs to be updated the icon will still stay at the top until you go into your messages folder and read the update...It's a bit annoying i know
