if it started just on whats app i would generally suggest it has linked to the whats app files. now it is opening more and more it has now sync with most of your files and folders.

best thing to do factory reset your device save as much as you can to SD card which you need.


1 Before you reset your Android , see options for backing up your data.

2 On your mobile device, open the Settings menu Settings .

3 Under "Personal", touch Backup & reset. You may need to enter your pattern, PIN or password.

4 Under "Personal data", touch Factory data reset.

5 Read the information on the screen and touch Reset phone.

6 If you have a screen lock, you'll need to enter your pattern, PIN or password.

7 When prompted, touch Delete everything to delete all data from your device's internal storage.

8 When your device has finished erasing, select the option to reboot your device.

Ps stay off the porn sites ^^ generally virus are downloads when visiting random links and the website installs an .apk generally the main anti virus programs are paid to miss these or dont bother because they think there a part of an .apk so do not flag up hope this helps

Yeah more and more things like this are being sent through whatsapp and fb. It mostly because now alot of people from smaller/developing countries are using it while the majority of us gave it up and switched to something else.

if you would like to know where and what is pop it up try installing "QtADB" it has a program in it called "logcat" basically shows you all jobs that the phone is running you can use this to bug check where the program is running from but you may be going in circles for a few hours thats why i said just to reset. google QtADB should come up with a list of instructions to install.
