    yep you have adware installed from somewhere.. i would go back one by one uninstall any of your recent apps dodgy or not. when you do this first delete cache and data for the app before you uninstall it. sometimes the adware can be hidden in cache or the apps data. just work your way from the most recent to the oldest.

    Keep in mind that some apps actually do not show any ads until they have been on the device for a while.

    Some even wait a week or more!
