what is that blue star that keeps appearing?

Every time my phone connects to either data or wifi I get a blue star in the notification bar advertising some stupid offer that i'm not interested in.
I know its probably a program i've installed but cant figure out which one it is!

Download the "push air defender" app and it scans and removes unwanted ads, excellent little app that clears all the rubbish

I had a similar problem with a "questionable" music downloading app I had installed...luckily I rarely install a new app so it was easy to find the culprit. I don't think there's any easy way to find out which app is causing the problem, though. Try uninstalling your most recently downloaded apps, that's about all I can suggest.

Try this app:

Installed but not sure how it will help with the problem? Its running now so I guess I'll have to wait for that blue cross turns up again.

One other important point... THE BLUE CROSS HAS BECOME A GREEN PLUS SIGN!

My guess is it's probably a live wallpaper I've installed.

Having the same blue star issue.
Air push detector finds nothing. Nor does addons detector.
Any other suggestions?

How many apps do you have installed? If it's less than 25, list them and I'll tell you your likely culprits.

If you touch and hold the notification it will pull up the app info. It will tell you which app is sending the spam.
