    Starting a few weeks ago, this crapware appeared. It seems that it appears when plugging into power or unplugging from power. I have googled and it seems ES File Explorer is a culprit, but I don't have that app. Not sure how it got on my phone. Any ideas? The way you have to swipe to get past this is dangerously close to the advert button to install or view more of the advert :(

    Yep crapware.
    What have you downloaded recently from the play store?
    Could be any number of apps causing the issue.

    I have been deleting apps, with no success. The trick is finding the culprit and I don't know how to identify it...
