Not sure if this will help in all cases but, a while back, I kept getting ads in the notification bar from a few sleazy apps but, couldn't track down the culprit. Did some research and found that the "Google Search" app was behind most of it. I know, sounds funny but, since I can search from a browser and don't need the specific app to search, I uninstalled it to see what would happen and that was 7 months ago and no ads since! You also need to make sure you unselect the ad-mob box in your Market settings. This will prevent most of the apps from getting your info from Google which, in their privacy policy, says they will share your info with 3rd party developers. Hope this helps some of you with this annoying problem.
