    These orange framed ads pop up out of nowhere, when I'm on my home screen YouTube or any other app. It gets me mad, I used an antivirus, malware and adware app. There was no virus or malware, and I deleted all the apps that contained adware. Right after the scan of my apps containing adware that I deleted, the Ads still pop up. Please help me. I have an LG G Stylo from MetroPCS

    Do they occur in Safe Mode?

    Certainly. Safe Mode disables third-party apps. If the problem stops, you return to normal mode and set about identifying the app causing trouble, then uninstalling it.

    How do I identify which app is causing it?

    Unfortunately, there's no way to pinpoint which app is causing the problem. What Safe Mode can do is tell you if the problem is being caused by some app you installed. To pinpoint it, you'd have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem goes away.

    At this point, you may just want to backup or sync your important data, then do a factory reset. When you set the phone up again. make sure apps aren't automatically installing from Google Play Store. Manually install apps one by one, watching closely for return of the ads.
