    Try Safe Mode as a diagnostic of whether a third-party app is causing the trouble. If the pop-ups stop, find and uninstall the app.
    If no go, get back to us.

    Welcome to Android Central!
    Android is different from Windows OS and they are two different platforms. This seems like a faulty app that wants you to install a 3rd party "antivirus". It might not appear in the app drawer,so go to Settings - Apps. You should see there the fishy app.
    Best regards,Mikey. I hope you found what you were looking for.

    I just got the same problem, but rebooting in safe mode did not help.
    It seems to be Chrome that is infected, and I don't know how to stop Chrome from connecting to the malicious website.
    Please help!

    This problem was very easily solved: What had happened was that the website goappsafety.com had been installed as the Chrome startscreen. In safe mode I managed to move to another website, and when I started Chrome again, this website had become startscreen. After that it was easy to set Google as startscreen as usual.
