    I recently tried to watch a movie online, using my android phone. Some dodgy-looking sites came up, so I shut it down. Now, however, when trying to wipe the cache etc from my phone, something called 'studynerdz' shows up, and no matter what I do, I can't wipe or delete it. It doesn't show up in apps so I can't uninstall it that way. Antivirus/malware sweeps don't detect or remove it. Any help?

    Welcome to Android Central! Where exactly do you see this show up? Is it a popup ad?

    See, this is why it's never a good idea to try to watch a "free" movie online.

    B.Diddy - yes, I now realise the risks of looking at movie sites online. I was looking for one that does not require credit card details, since I don't have one.
    Anyway, I only noticed this 'studynerdz.com' when emptying my search history etc, which normally wipes everything except Google. Now it wipes everything except Google & this site. I don't know what it is or does but I am concerned that it can't be gotten rid of. I never (knowingly) visited or used this site.
    Is factory reset the only option?

    Try clearing the everything in the browsing history (sites, cookies, etc.) "from the beginning of time" in the browser app's settings. If you're using Chrome, do the same on your computer's Chrome browser as well. Now see if the problem persists.
