    Hi, first post on this site.
    I am very happy with my Droid operating system, though coming from a UNIX background I wish unlocking was easier so it will truly be an open source project.
    I am getting new apps about once a week popping up on my Android home
    that I have no idea where they came from. Should be illegal.It's very invasive.
    I checked my apps for anything suspicious.
    Please help! I hope we can solve this for everybody.

    It's aggressive advertising known as AirPush, pushed from an app on your phone.

    Install LookOut's 'Ad Network Detector' to find this app which pushes this spam and uninstall it.
