Default Having problems with an app, please help.

Hi everybody:

This is my first post and wasn't sure if this was the right forum. If it is not, Im really sorry.

Im having a little problem with some app which is more annoying that anything else. For a while now my tablet (Samsung Tab 10.1) has been trying to download(?) something that it names "<Untitled> wallpapers.goodfon.com".

I get a bar in the notifications that looks like a downloading bar and it stays there until I restart the tablet. It happens three or more times a day and like I said is really annoying.

This is most likely caused by an app, but I want to know if there is any way to figure out which app is doing this because I dont want to uninstall one by one to find out which one is causing this. That would take me months.

Or even better, has anybody experienced this?

I think the feature was introduced in Jelly Bean (maybe it was ICS), try long pressing on the notification, that should pop up an "App Info" button you can press which will tell you what app created that notification (and conveniently you can disabled notifications and uninstall it from there).

Go in Settings | Apps | All | and search the app Downloads, stop the app's running and clear its Data and Cache ... voila
