    It started a few weeks ago. At first, it was a blue butterfly inside a white bubble, then it turned into a hangman drawing on yellow bubble. It gravitates towards the sides of my screen, if I try to move it, it pops right back to the side. If I click on it, it takes me to random places... sometimes news, sometimes ads, touchpal, etc.

    I can't delete it. I tried to reset my phone to the factory settings, and only re-downloaded the apps that I trust, but that caused the bubble to mutate into a globe.

    HELP.

    Welcome.

    Does it occur in Safe Mode too?

    Try a different launcher from the Play Store, such as Google Now. Does it still occur when that launcher is used instead of your current one?

    Just download and install another launcher from the Play Store. I suggested Google Now because we can be certain that it does not do things like that....I use it myself. But there are others.
    Once installed you will be prompted to set it as your default launcher.
    You can easily return to your original launcher if you wish via Settings, Home, and then resetting it as the default launcher.
