    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.
    -Nate

    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.
