Hi,
I have an annoying mobogenie.apk download problem for a few days. It's start on xda forum page. Now it can happens 5-6 times for a day even if I'm off-line. I am so annoyed by this stupid app. I can say that it's not just a website, but a lot of websites. Download the file automatically without permissions. I use my stock browser on galaxy s with latest CM11. Some times it downloads when I open play store application.
Safe mod doesn't works to prevent this problem. AVG search not found any mallisious situation.
Have can I solve this annoying problem?
Thanks in advance.

Chrome at least asks whether you want to download the file or not...

I have formatted the /system folder and installed new nightly, instead of installing a new application. This temporarily solves my problem.
