    Its been happening for a while, I always get these ads which forces me to "install" an app but then I just dont install the apk.
    Ive ran multiple scans from different antivirus apps but nothing works. Ive also used apps like AirPush, but they always crash. So if anyone has any suggestions please tell me.

    Have you tried this app?


    Have your tried clearing data and cache (using app manager) for all installed browsers?

    Have you tried booting into Safe Mode and seeing if that helps - then add your normal apps one at a time to see what is causing the issue ? (Safe mode allows only factory installed apps to run at boot)

    It may help to know which device, android version and browser you are using..whether it is rooted etc.

    Your best bet is probably a factory reset.

    Make sure you back up your phone contents to a PC (or to your SD card if your phone has one) first.

    If your phone is set up to back up to Google, getting it set up again is relatively painless. I had to do this earlier this week and it took maybe an hour end-to-end. Just make sure you know the passwords etc for your Google account, other e-mail accounts and the like.

    If you read the "read more" description in the playstore entry for addon detector, it tells you how to use the app..

    The long description is useful to bring more keywords in 1st position in playstore.
