    This is on an Letv One Pro x800
    So earlier today ads started poping up on my screen on the home screen and in ads, advertising other ads (mainly swiftkey).
    I've googled it for the past 2 hours but havent found a solution.
    I've deleted most apps and rebooted but nothing.
    I've downloaded some virus scanners but they've haven't found anything. I just downloaded a malware app and that found 5 things.
    4 of these having "trojen" in them.
    The other has "PUP.Adware.Ewind.o".
    I would delete them but all 4 of them I'm certain were installed with the phone.
    For the other though I don't remember seeing it before. The location for it is /system/priv-app/Processor/Processor.apk
    I can't delete any of them.
    I just found the images for the ads. They're stored in /android/img/
    So now I know where the pictures are but I dont know how to stop the ads
    Anybody know how to fix this?
    Ok so I gave up and factory reset my phone.
    And did it fix the issue?
    NO!

    Before you did a factory reset, did you disable automatic updates in the Playstore? If not, and your phone updated automatically, then the responsible app for the ads just reinstalled itself.

    Before you factory reset again, disable Playstore auto updates, turn off your wifi router at home, turn off Data as soon as you're able to after you go through setup. If you still get ads with nothing on the phone and no internet, then I have no other ideas.
