    I use android 4.3 and my device is root and I have AVG and adblock plus . but after Friday , when I connect to network with wireless , I see new icon in left corner at top of my phone , and I see new notification about new softwares like antivirus and cleaning application . sometimes I see two or three icon and I can not remove these advertise or notification , when I click one of them my browser open and my browser start download some apk files , but I do not install them .
    For examples I see notifications about how much email I have and I see one or two or three icon about application .

    I can make two suggestions:

    1) When the notification appears, long-press on it and tap the App Info button that appears. That *should* let you identify what application is generating the ads, and you can either uninstall it or untick the Show Notifications option.

    2) If that doesn't work, try using the AirPush Detector application, which should also be able to identify the offending application.

    Let us know how you get on :)
