Yeah, if you are seeing ads jn the notification area that means a currently installed app is serving them. If it were texts or emails it could be some outfit you gave your details to, but this sounds like push advertising.

Use Addons Detector, Airpush Detector or Lookout Ad Network Detector to identify the culprit and uninstall that.

I should add that I'm referring to Curly's problem here - don't know whether the OP is seeing the same thing.
