Chasing down Pop up malware or adware
First time Android user here - new LG G3, rooted (IOroot).

There was another (which occured on my home screen) but I didn't capture it. Since I'm not using TouchPal, it certainly smells malware-ish.
How does one go about tracking down what is running and how to squish these annoyances?
