    Hi. I have a s5 and over the last week I've had a problem with ads for games appear when I open it up on any app. I've run avg and have not found any issues. But I have noticed a weather app appear when I switch my phone on. Cannot see it any where installed on my phone and presume that this is causing my problem. I have done a reset, but this still appears. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Sounds like ad supported apps. If you are rooted or can get rooted you can always use adblocker to prevent the ads. Keep in mind though that developers offer free apps in exchange for advertising revenue. Personally this is why I prefer paid apps instead of free ones that run ads which suck up resources.

    Thanks for your reply. But is there anything I can do to remove this app. I have checked everywhere on my phone and cannot see it. Phone is not rooted either
