    I have a Nexus 7 and recently I must have downloaded something that put some kind of Ad ware on it. I just randomly have my tablet stop and an Ad will pop-up. Usually it is an Ad to download Candy Crush.

    Is there an app or some way I can go and find out what's on my tablet so I can clean it off?

    Install AddOns Detector, run a scan, then uninstall the offending app(s).

    if that didn't work, try 'Trustgo Ad detector'... I think that 'Trustgo antivirus' application even removes some ads.
