Get air push detector from the market... It'll tell you what app is causing it.. Then uninstall it

Although it won't get rid of what's causing the adds, one of the add blockers could stop them from popping up.

didnt work.

Did it give you a list of any apps that are pushing ads? You then have to uninstall the app. You can also look to see which new apps you downloaded at the time the ads started. Delete those apps, one by one, until the ads stop. When they have stopped, you will have found your culprit and don't reinstall it.

Let us know when you discover which app it is so we can avoid it.

I have used it for months and no problems. This is good to know because I will try uninstalling that first if I ever get any problems. Actually I will probably just uninstall the most recent apps I downloaded first, then if that doesn't work say good bye to go keyboard. I try to install apps one at a time, so if I do have problems I will know which one to blame.

Although it is possible that it was Go Keyboard, there is a chance that it was a Theme for Go Keyboard. I've used almost all of the Go products at one time or another and have never had a problem. I have had various themes for their products reek havoc with my phone.
The Go products are usually pretty good.
