    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry, I'm not quite understanding you. The phone is actually trying to download a file, or is it trying to open a website in your browser? What's this about "femail for spanish(s"?

    Chances are that you either have some adware or malware on your phone. Try installing a good antimalware app like Malwarebytes and running a scan. Also try something like Lookout's Ad Network Scanner & Detector.

    You might have to consider a factory reset, which means you'll lose your data--backup as much as you can first. Also, go to Settings>Backup & Reset, and uncheck "Automatically Restore." When you reset, I think this will prevent your apps from automatically reinstalling, which you wouldn't want to occur if one of them is malicious.
