    recently my Note 4 has been, at the oddest moments, splashing up a screen to warn me of danger and upgrade my system. I know its fake, the grammar is horrendous ! I cant find or figure out why its happening. also along the same theme, a screen will pop up with a siren tone advising me im a "winner". I have not allowed them to go any further but they are really annoying and I know they shouldn't be there. I did download a virus app off google play but it didn't see this issue as it has continued so I uninstalled that also.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm sure they're pushing ads to your phone. I would suggest you download an Ad Network Detector app and see if that can pin-point which app is pushing them to your phone and clean it.

    THIS IS CRZY...I just DL'd air push and two other detectors...all three have stopped mid scan repeatedly....this make no sense to me. how can three apps all freeze up during their scan ?

    In this situation, I would definitely back up all my data and do a factory reset.Then just load my apps one by one, just to see if this malware comes back.

    You can also try running in Safe Mode before you do the factory reset. And then, in that mode, run the Ad Detector.
