    Default Problems With Full Screen Ads?

    Hello all,

    I'm new to AC (this being my first actual post) and I'm here to ask if anyone else gets full screen ads on their phones. I've run a bunch of virus scans and nothing seems to come up, and I've uninstalled nearly every app that I think could've been the source of the problem (even GO SMS). I'll post a screenshot as an example of what I'm seeing every hour or two. Thanks for any help.

    Try installing Air Push Detector. It should be able to tell you which app is generating the ads. When the prompt pops up telling you that you don't need the app, just click "It doesn't work" to force it to run.

    I'll check it out and get back to you, thanks for the recommendation.

    Update: Downloaded the app, said that "I couldn't find any apps with notification ads".

    Weird. Would you mind trying Lookout Ad Network Detector? Let me know if it works for you.

    Also try Norton mobile and Norton Spot.

    I'll check it out, thanks.

    It says some apps that I could uninstall, but it doesn't say what app causes the full screen ads.

    How many apps is it? Delete them one at a time to find the culprit.
