    Every day I have a couple of unwanted icons that show up on the home screen. Usually they are for games. But there were also some for job opportunities, free apps and other stuff. Is there a way to block those. It is boring to have to sweep them away all the time.

    You sir are the victim of air push ads. Download THIS app and open it. It will tell you which apps are the culprit :)

    Thanks guys. I am rooted and I have AdFree installed. I thought that one would take care of it. But maybe it is only for browsers.

    I will try what you suggested.

    Great - 'Live TV for Android' was the bugger. I got him with a hefty knock on the "Uninstall" - LOL
