Default I am getting spammed like crazy!

Every 10 minutes I get a notification and it's always something different. But this is the screen shot I got recently. What is this? How do I get rid of this malware type stuff?

Looks like you're getting some kind of push notifications from an installed app. For more on push ads, see: Push advertising: notification ads, unwanted shortcuts, browsers redirected.

BTW - I recommend Addons Detector to help identify the offending app.

An app lIke "AirPush Detector" on Google Play Store might identify an app on your phone that is causing these Notification ads and the plus signs and stars on the Status bar.
