    When I switch my phone on the time screen appears normally. When I swipe this to get to the loader a series of full screen ads appears. They advertise Amazons app and come from ads by google. I have to swipe these before I get to the loader. Apart from being annoying, these could delay the use of the phone in an emergency. Is there a way of stopping this ? I appreciate that we must tolerate adverts but I feel this is a step too far. Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks for replying. I have a Star 9500. At this point I am not using any ap to my knowledge. This occurs before the loader appears. I use Nova but reverted to the standard loader and the phenomena still occured.

    Install 2 apps, Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

    Run one (overnight - it takes a long time to run). When it's finished, let it quarantine or delete anything it finds. Once it's finished, run the other one. Same thing - let it quarantine or delete anything it finds.

    It sounds as if you have some malware in your phone.
