Game icon hijacked my Speed Dials
I'm getting advertising pages when I launch the browser, Norton, McAfee, Ali express. I also see some sort of game icon that appears on the Start page. I'm not a gamer and want that to go away. How do I fix this, I am synced on 6 computers and all of them are doing it. Hope I don't have to reload them all.

@jhs_61 The default speed dial bookmarks are how Vivaldi makes some money. You can simply delete those that you are never likely to use.

right click on game icon > untick "show game on speed dial".

If you just mean default speed dial entries you never add... just remove them and they shouldn't appear again.
