    Is anyone getting random adverts popping up all the time using their htc ? At first I thought it was just google ads but I disable them in the settings of the google chrome browser and still I am getting these full screen ads. Even when I'm not using the browser these ads come up sometimes when I unlock my device, sometimes when I open an app or close an app it's completely random. Please could some one help me how to fix this I've tried installing malware bytes and ad block apps but nothing seems to be working. I've also deleted all the recently installed apps from when this problem first started happening. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to Android Central! This is usually due to some adware that was unwittingly installed alongside some other app (usually a game). If you've already uninstalled all you can, you may have to backup your data and do a factory reset. Then after finishing the Setup Wizard, go immediately to the Play Store and stop any app that might be automatically installing. Check to see if the ads persist. If not, start reinstalling apps one by one, being cautious with games (especially ones that are very similar to/ripoffs of popular games), "RAM boosters," gambling apps, "free" music/movie downloaders, and of course, porn.

    Cross Posted from different topic=================

    I have a similar problem on my Nexus 7 AOS 5.1.1 (after scanning this board, I find that different models of Android have the same problem - but this is the first one topic I saw). Seems to have started with AOS 5??

    Random ads pop up between program launches/calls. If a program calls another program, or does some type of calling routine, the ad launches.
    This is NOT related to any single program or browser, and does not launch every time (seems some time of time factor that controls it.)
    A simple touch of the 'back' button and it closes, no reason to wait.

    Is there some time of system logger app that will keep track of system call action? This would help to find the called/calling program.
    A new problem has just started. Nexus 7 keeps rebooting it self (I have not localized the problem yet - too new) Seems to have something to do with streaming media - not sure yet.

    Any ideas before I do a complete system reset. Rather not since some apps were installed on a limited time trial and can not be reinstalled. (app of the day - maybe the problem came from this app??)
    System Reset would be a Royal Pain!!!
    All my apps (but one) came from Google Play, and that one I know is clean.
