    Hi,

    I downloaded a bunch of apps from Google Play Store, and suddenly found that I have inherited 2 "Ad Icons" (they are smaller than regular icons - when opened one takes me to install Facebook the other usually has an ad for games - SEE PICTURE 1 - [ Red RAM 84% & White Icon). Almost everytime that I want to use a program an ad will pop up which I must look at and close to access my program. Rather brilliant from the producer but I need to know how to remove the problem from my phone.

    I have tried installing the "Hi-Security" app and "Airpusher" and removed the apps that it suggested may have been problematic but to no avail.

    Is there any other programs or options that I can utilize to remove the issue?

    Thank you for your help and time.

    Uninnstall the apps that you installed just before the problem started, then run a good anti-virus app and Malwarebytes.
