I have two layers that have a purple circle around the visiblity "eye" icon in the outliner. Every time I hit undo, these two purple layers re-appear. How do I mark them as un purple?

Sounds like you somehow added a driver to an object on one of the layers. Simply right click the eye and choose Delete Driver. It is an undoable action so if you undo, it will revert so you might want to save the file and reload it.

@portforwardpodcast Normally just adding a driver shouldn't do anything but it seems like you have something else going on for it to be messing with your scene. – iKlsR Aug 24 '14 at 8:29
