    I was googling live wallpapers and found a guy who made his own Skyrim one. I asked if he would share it with me. When I downloaded it, I uploaded it to Jotti's malware scan to check it out (as I do with everything) and 2 hits came up. I would just like to know what they mean...

    From what I've heard, AirPush is basically code in an app that pushes ads to your notifications bar. I don't think it steals data or anything, but it's very annoying and intrusive.

    How would you get rid of it if you had it and didn't know what program caused it?

    Airpush Detector on the Market will tell you which apps are using Airpush.

    Airpush is a service taken my App developers for monetization of their free app. Airpush shows adds while using the app.

    Well the thing that sucks about Airpush is that it can push ads to your notification bar even when you're not using the app.

    One thing for the OP to consider. Just because an app has Airpush doesn't mean it's necessarily using it. (Although it could start at anytime). You might want to use it and see if it's actually using Airpush. Or just don't use it on principle.
