    i recently noticed that i have 16 invisible icons that say untitled below them. They are obviously shortcuts to safari but when i tap it. it goes to a safrii page that says about:blank in the URL bar. But when i delete them if i lock then unlock then they come back. its not park of winterboard because i turned off all off my themes and everything i had enablesd in winterboard so it looked normal and the same thing happens. do i have a virus? is that even possible? can i get rid of it withought restoring? its really annoying so what can i do? I ahve a 1st gen touch running 2.1 firmware it is jailbroken

    Yes, if you have your iPod jailbroken and have Winterboard installed this could be why. Some themes use what are called "Blank Apps" to fill in spaces where they don't want icons. For example if a themer just wanted 4 icons in the second row, they would need to fill the first row with Blank Apps in order to make that part invisible and allow the others to be moved down.

    If you do not have your iPod jailbroken and have no themes installed, these are probably just webclips which are links with an icon to a safari page. About:Blank would be the cause of this if you don't have your iPod jailbroken and have Winterboard.
