    This happens frequently: I'll turn on my nvidia shield tablet, and the dancing android mascot will show on the screen with a load bar, and once it loads it's just a recommendation of an app that I do not want (like clash of clans or game of fire or whatever). Can I turn these off, or is this a virus? Halp, this is really annoying.

    Welcome to Android Central! It's not from Google Play--it's most likely some adware that you unwittingly installed along with some other app (probably a game). Try an app like Lookout's Ad-Network Detector & Scanner. If that doesn't help, then you may just have to uninstall apps one by one until it goes away.

    I have the same problem with my galaxy avant. It always happens at the worst time too when I'm trying to use my camera or answer a text. Thing is it did it before before I downloaded any apps. Any other ideas?
