    Maybe it is connected to another app?

    Agree with dubge.. Probably connected to another app. I just had one the other day with some App I had on my Xoom. I have had the actual app forever, but some update that got pushed down stuck some crap on there that kept pushing me ads that would appear as notifications...

    I could not tell what app it was at the time, but the program I downloaded to detect it was AirPush Detector. Right away it popped up and said it was 'Avid Planets' (I think...) I nuked the hell out of that program and the crap was gone.

    Now, I don't know if that is what you have or not, but it wouldn't hurt to try. The thing that really sucks is that you can download an app one day.. then a month down the road it gets updated and you don't think anything of it and BAM, spyware/adware/crapware.. whatever.

    It was related to another app. Mp3 downloader i found out they are called air push notifications. Downloaded an app called air push detector that find the notifications apps so you can uninstall them.

    If it an app store, it is auto hijacked... Other kinds of programs work np.

    Attn Moderator. I have this problem. It is a PUP. It hijacks any app browsing or downloading, so you CANT clean it up even if you found an app to do so!
    Think I could dl a cleaner on my puter and move it to the Nexus off the LAN?

    I have this problem too, but I can't use Airpush blocker, so I don't know what app downloaded it. Does anyone know any other way to get rid of it??

    I don't get ads anywhere using AdAway, but you must be rooted. Looks like some of these do not require root access. Might want to give one a shot.

    if you are getting notification ads, lonpress on the notificatin, and choose app info. this will take you to the app that is doing it. you can uninstall, or block the app from accessing your notification bar.
    as for the home screen app ads, not sure there, some home launchers (nova, apex) allow longpressing and app info. but unsure if it would actually work with what is essentially an ad.
