TECNO DROIDPAD 7C POP-UP ADS AND INSTALLS APP ANYHOW - tkaytech - 25-01-2017

Hi,

I'm having a major problem with my new Tecno Droidpad 7c and the issue is that, anytime i connect to the internet, either wireless or data connection, it continuously display various ads and pop-ups. In most cases, it installs apps by itself without my knowledge.

I tried identifying the app causing this and i detected that it is one proxyServer process. Anytime i disable this proxyServer process from running, the pop-ups will stop but the worst part is, this process restarts itself within some minutes and the pop-ups surface again.

I tried various antivirus, some of them are detecting this proxyServer process but they are unable to delete it.


I tried to restore the phone to factory settings but this process will not leave my phone. I dont want to root this phone. is there anything i can do to remove this so called but/virus from my phone.?


Its really annoying, Please help!!!

Just wanted to be sure because its weird that you'll be attacked at the system level without root, unless your phone caught a nasty malware.
In that case, you'll need to flash the firmware @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-311.html using SP flash tool @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html
Before you do that, ensure to dump your firmware in scatter format using Miracle Box @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13347.html just incase
