    I'd recommend installing "Airpush Detector". It will find the culprits and allow you to uninstall them.
    Sorry but this is the app developers causing this. Not Android.

    What ^ said.
    Install apps one at a time, that way once ads start appearing you can remove the offending apps and give crappy feedback.

    A lot of my free apps have no or unobtrusive ads. Like a post already said, install one app at a time to see what's happening. Some games or wallpaper or fun apps have these obnoxious ads. Also, read reviews to see what others say.

    occasionally got annoying notifications, downloaded and installed "Airpush Detector", detected an app and a widget, deleted them. Found a new battery widget, installed it, re-ran Airpush, came up clean. Will run this app after every app and widget install I do!!:biggrin: Thx, GREAT solution!
