Default Strange App on BB

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know why, or where it came from, but I have this icon on my menu screen for something called "Trooper Typing". I have not (intentionally) installed any app like this. When I click on it, it takes me to a page called "End-User License". On it, it says Blackberry Fun and Games. It has all the normal stuff that you click on before accepting or declining the legal mumbo-jumbo.
The strange thing though is that it doesn't show up either on my application page in my DM, so I have no way to erase it.
I'd appreciate any help in this because I didn't put this in my phone, but now it seems I can't get rid of it.

Thanks. Guess I'll just hide it for now. Pisses me off though that I got something I didn't ask for that's taking up space.

It's just a shortcut link, so it does not take up much storage... but I feel your pain. AT&T has shoved 13 separate pieces of their crapware down to my Curve... I will NEVER buy or use anything that gets shoved at me in that way. It's bad enough that I pay $250/month for their service, now I have to put up with their crapware, too. Just hide it and take another blood pressure pill.

Then I'll start getting blood pressure ads pushed on my BB.

Thanks!
