I have adware on a new phone already haha not been playing on it long and only downloaded well known apps from the app store - bbc iplayer, sims and ccleaner and since the adware I have put on mbam, kapersky and zemana av just to scan and zemana found 1 trojan that's gone but I got another advert. It's my first ever mobile phone so I don't know to much about them.

The adverts pop up randomly and cover the screen can some one recommend a bit of software to find and remove it and then another bit of software to help keep it at bay.

Thanks

UPDATE: Adverts have gone when I switched on today. Don't know why. Should I close this post or keep open and have a check done. I only ask as this is my first phone and I have no clue about mobile phones none at all.

Thanks

We'll keep it open.
