    For the past couple of weeks my phone keeps downloading the same file. Have no clue what it is and Googling the file name gets no results. I'm not able to open it (get a "cannot open file" message). Any ideas what this file is and how to a stop my phone from downloading it?
    file is msnbc14.m3u8

    Look in your app drawer for an app called "downloads" (i think), open it and clear downloads. See if that fixes it

    I think this solved it. Deleted file from the download folder and have not had a notification since. Never did open it, not sure I want to since it was not a file I purposefully downloaded. Thanks.

    Avast makes anti-virus for Android and I had it on my Motion for about a year, and it does wonders. I also had Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed, and I also had a defrag app installed which actually did wonders on my Motion after 2 years. I definitely noticed a speed increase.
