Hello Everyone,

I am using samsung galaxy y phone. Two days back i installed free game and whats app application on my phone since then an annoying notification of "Samsung Ad Utility" with 81 % completed, showing constantly in the top notification bar.

I don't know how it came, i never downloaded this.. I want to remove it but it's not responding, don't know what to do.. Is this affect my phone in future..

Is there any way to get rid of it.. Please suggest, share your views to remove it completely without affecting whole data.

Some apps have Airpush Ads, which put advertisements on the notification bar. Basically, one of the apps you installed, most likely the game, uses airpush ads. This would use the Samsung Ad utility to download the advertisement and show it on your notification bar. The only way to stop this is to uninstall the app that uses airpush ads.

You can uninstall it via Application Manager (or System > Apps > Manage Apps depending on Android version) in the all tab. Then just do not use the Samsung Apps app. The Samsung Apps app is what installs it, so it can give you free games (and display ads to pay for them).

It's all the service is. Ever wonder how Samsung puts normally paid-for games on their own app store for free? This is how

Actually, the Samsung apps does not have airpush ads even if you use it. I download apps and games from it (either because its free there or its not available in my country from Play Store), and I have zero airpush ads.

I never said they were airpush ads. When I open "Samsung Apps" on my GS3, I get a new notification "Ad Utility Installed". I looked in my All tab of App Manager and, sure enough, it's there. I uninstalled it and opened "Samsung Apps" again, and it reinstalls. I assume that this service drives ad traffic through the free apps, including in-app ads. Perhaps it's just ads that show up in the "Samsung App" app. I have ads disabled on my GS3, so I didn't see any. But I assume there are there.
