    Hi All
    A couple of times recently i have occasionally pressed the odd button and for some reason the Google Play Store opens up with a Dating App or some other Apps. Any idea what this is and how to get rid of it? Looks like a virus of some kind. I downloaded a virus scanner but it found nothing, i have also removed any apps i recently downloads but still have it, strange

    Adware, maybe? Beg Lavasoft to come out with an Android version. Adaware is probably the best thing for adware (but it's not for phones).

    I don't have the odd button on my phone, and if I did wouldn't press it. What does the odd button look like and where does it appear? Is it there all the time, or just sometime?

    Ha my bad on this one.

    What i am saying is that sometimes i will press the email icon to get my email and then it will rather that show my email, go to a app store page for something.

    Just seems to be random pop ups, anyone else seen these?

    Not really too sure how to stop these
