How to stop android-pop up adverts on M8?

I have been having alot of problems with android lately, everytime i go on ny phone htc m8 with android it doesnt matter if im on my home screen, playing a game or do anything on my phone every couple of minutes I'll get this android loading icon pop up for like 1 second and it will just give me an advert every time. Even when i am not using the internet even if data is still on.

I would like to know how to stop this as it ruins games that i play if im trying to beat a highscore or watch a video or anything it just comes up whenever it wants it never used to do this until a couple weeks ago

Welcome to Android Central! You probably installed some adware unwittingly, alongside some other app (probably a game). Uninstall apps one by one until that behavior goes away.
