    Yes, its an app that you downloaded that is allowing the ad to show in your notification bar. Download airpush detector from the market and it will find whatever app is doing it so you can uninstall it.

    It's happening because a bad app was installed... Get air push detector from the market... It'll tell you what app us causing it ..then just uninstall that app

    I installed and ran the app. All the apps it detected were Go locker themes. Not all of the ones I have but quite a few of them.

    Did you uninstall them and see if the ads went away?

    I uninstalled all the ones it showed and I haven't seen any more adds show up. Did a few power off/on and a few days no adds so far.
