    No. In safe mode they dont seem to show up. I cant figure out how to solve that. I also deleted the last programms that i downloaded and after that i made a clear with sd maid pro. Now im stuck and cant find the reason why they still appear.

    Are you sure you still have no third-party apps from which the ads may originate?
    Also, when uninstalling such apps, Clear Cache, Clear Data, and Force Stop before tapping Uninstall, to remove all traces of the app.

    Welcome to Android Central! This is adware that was installed along with some other app you installed. It's difficult to know for sure which app it was, so in these situations, you just have to uninstall apps one by one until the ads go away. If you've already uninstalled everything, then the adware might still be lurking somewhere, in which case you should do a factory reset, and then reinstall apps very slowly one by one, watching closely for the ads to reappear.

    Thanks for the answer. I will try installing each app one by one to my new tablet so i could find out the app that way. Maybe i can avoid factory reset, i hope so!
