    I received for the 2nd time a notification "Spy on your Friends" (Get the X-Ray scanner...), then touching anywhere in the notification field opens a browser and wants to install an non-Market application, which I have fortunately disabled.

    But I want to know why do I get this notification and where is it coming from?

    Did you get this fixed? I have the same problem on a Galaxy S2. I've tried to install a couple of antivirus and malware scanners, but none of them have found anything out of place.

    Sounds like something that concerns us all, so I've moved this here to the Android Lounge.

    Have you tried the airpush detector from the market.

    Sounds like the airpush virus that some devs voluntarily put in their apps to put ads in your notification bar.
