Default How to remove icons

I have two icons that I did not download and can't get rid of. One is Kindle and the other is Nova.

Any ideas how to get rid of these icons?

You can remove the icons from the screen by long-pressing and dragging them down to the trashcan that appears. However, you cannot uninstall the apps themselves unless you are rooted.

Long press and drag to trashcan doesn't work. They won't go away.

When I use an uninstaller, those two don't show up on the list to uninstall.

Don't know what to do to get rid of them. I'm beginning to think they are malware even though I only download from the app store.

Edit: Well, ran a full scan with Kaspersky and came back eith no threats so I guess they are Sprint apps that I can't get rid of.

As I said, you cannot uninstall the apps without rooting. What you are talking about isn't removing icons from the screen but uninstalling the apps and you just can't do that, sorry.

Please use the edit or modify function instead of posting back to back messages. Thanks.
