Default pop-up appearing on main android screen

Recently installed cyanogenmod and installed few additional application however, starting few days ago, lot of popup with advertisement showing up on main screen which is testing my nerve. These are not in-app popup shows up usually in the app screen. IT shows up on main screen. I am bit not sure on how to get rid of it. Once popup it will disappear if I hit any button therefore it is hard to say where the source is from. There is nothing in the status bar. Anyone has suggestion?

It's not in the play store because it isn't in googles best interest. Go look at the application subforum, you'll find it over there.

Default Pop up ads

Use AVG AntiVirus. You have a malware app on your phone. You can uninstall the app in 'settings'. The problem is finding the malicious program because the name is cleverly masked to deceive you that is an actual system program. AVG should be able to find the app.

I suggest you scan using bitdefender or avast as well as uninstalling the apps you installed before or do a complete reset. Otherwise you're in bad shape.
