  1. Hey Armando! Thanks kindly for taking the time to answer and for the excellent suggestions. I did try Opera and uninstalling Chrome, but no go... I tried Adblock Plus, but no... So, since I was getting kind of desperate, I went ahead and reinstalled the Cyanmod OS along with GAPPS and redid everything and thankfully it is okay now. But, thank you VERY much for the help! Lets hope that stuff stays away. One interesting thing though... when I was re-installing everything, the MOMENT I tried re-installing Turbo Launcher (which I'd been using just fine for over a year and loved it) from Google Play, IMMEDIATELY I started getting the homes screen popups! So, needless to say, I IMMEDIATELY uninstalled it and went with Nova Launcher, which is fine.
  2. Nope... It LOOKED like it caught 4 malware programs, but I'm still getting the popups on my homescreen
  3. Heh, actually, I just installed CM antivirus and SUPPOSEDLY in like literally 5 seconds it found 3 malware 'exploits' and 'phishing' files. So, IF it actually in reality found and got rid of those, maybe my ads will be gone now, I don't know... I'll come back in a day or so and say whether the ads are gone. Thanks!
  4. Hello! This is my first post here. After some recent update (I THINK it appeared like a standard Google update of some kind) my Android telephone which has been perfectly fine for over a year suddenly began displaying unwanted popup ads on my homescreen. They appear randomly and usually run the same 6-8 ads each time. I have done scans with both Avast and Malwarebytes and NOTHING has been flagged or found! The ads consist of a couple of what LOOK like Google play apps. One is for my battery. A couple have the heading 'WISH' on them. Sooooo, could someone PLEASE tell me, where the heck are these ads coming from...? I download NO games or superfluous apps. My telephone is rooted and I have gone carefully through everything that is currently running and I don't see anything out of the ordinary. Any suggestions would be VERY nice, thank you!
