Default Status bar ads?

I keep getting ads in my status bar, has a star next to it and says things like "Want a nice car for a decent price?" now, i know i dont have the best, or most working car in the world, but is there a way to get my phone to stop reminding me of this? I think it came from some download I got off of the market, perhaps the Nintendo 64 Emulator. Any way to remove this? Ad Away isn't doing it.

it is from a download. you have to figure out which one it is. try the air push app to get a better idea of which app it is. hope this helped

you can also just search the play store for "opt-out" and download all the different Ad opt-out apps...you run them once and then can uninstall them and they make that phone opted out for those ad companies for the life of the phone
