    I'd have to guess they are the result of a recent "free app" that you added. I've noticed many of them have ads running through the app.

    Open the applications manager and see what processes or apps are running. If there is an app running in the background giving you notifications for ads then it should show up and you can either remove or stop it.

    Try an "AD Blocker" @ Google Play

    They have them for "Unrooted" & "Rooted" Phones

    Also checkout an app called "Airpush Blocker" in the play store which will tell you what APPs are pushing the Ad's as well.

    There are some other "Ad" Finders, Hosts file changers, etc..

    Tip: Never rush to download any APP "Updates", read the feedback for a few days so that you can see if other people are having issues with it and/or changes to permissions or other you may not want! Always use a Back Up APP!
