    Thanks much for that Detector. Been getting ads in notification bar lately. Turns out TubeMate was the culprit. deleted.

    Ads in an app is one thing but that's crazy how they make it look like its a real notification from the market instead of an ad. I'm glad I haven't came across any apps that throw ads in the notification bar, I am so picky. Hopefully the developers will realize this is hurting their apps cuz its just gonna make ppl uninstall them and not get download anymore of their apps. ...Leave your ads in your apps lol

    There's a mp3 download application that is in the top free apps in the market. I got it, got 3 songs and saw ads in my notifications. Nothing since I uninstalled it.

    Yep! Mp3 download was the culprit on my phone as well. Now I only install it when I need it then uninstall when I'm done.

    I've gotten spam in my notification bar, too. I ran aidpush detector and it showed nothing. The ad says something about being a prize winner. The url associated with that "prize page" is
    com-ws.us/win/usa/

    Any ideas for getting rid of it? Luckily, It has only popped up 3 or 4 tines in about 2 weeks.

    Don't know what yours is but I was having a sort of browser hijack happen about every two weeks, which would start me off on a spammy site. I flashed a new ROM and now it doesn't happen. It also killed a permanent Verizon banner in my Huffington Post app. I know you'd just like a quick fix for this specific problem, but if nothing else comes up (and you're rooted), you could always try flashing or reflashing.

    I had used addons detector before with the push filter and found nothing but I tried it again today (perhaps there was an update?) and it found "Bloat Freezer" as the culprit. I just uninstalled Bloat Freezer and hopefuly that will take care of my problem. Please continue to post offending apps.

    Edit:
    Another option to get rid of this crap:
    Airblocker - Airpush Block
    ByQ Develop
    (get it in the market)

    I have installed multiple apps lately and a star with a red dot started showing in my notification bar. I have opened it the first time and it redirected me to a site called http://visitorssurveygroup.com/v/promo/us.
    I have installed Lookout and Airpush Detector. They have found nothing but the star has disappeared.

    But lately I am getting pop-up notifications with a link to the same website and it happens when I open up the browser. Attached is the image. After that I can only click on the 'OK' button but luckily it doesn't redirect me.

    Is reseting the only way to get rid of this?

    I suggest to you, tincaminca - try Addons Detector. That's one that found my problem. Good luck!

    It might not be a good idea, but i'm going to try it and I will post a result. AirPush has an opt out link: Mobile Ads Redefined | Push Notification ad network | Android app monetization
    I will try it on my phone since I am recieving the free ipad3 and sexy singles ads

    Use airpush blocker. I called HTC, they advised to use an app called airblocker. You don't necesarrily need to root your phone. You can install the app and it will give you a list of apps that use airpush and you can delete that app. If you want to keep that app that uses airpush then you do have to root your phone. I used it and it gave me music paradise as the one I had installed that uses airpush

    I haven't recieved any so far but I will notify if I do. I also went back into music paradise after and the second review mentioned a virus which I would assume to be the AirPush.

    I read other threads where the apps werent' found. But thank you to ahhorner for mentioning airblocker app.
    I installed it and ... I will wait and see. Hopefully no more 'push' ads. The ones that appeared on my task bar were at random times. Just here and there during the day. Yipes!!!

    Didn't read trough to post, but check out an app on the play store called air push detector. That app should then give you which app it is.
