Got this error message, "Battery Losing Charge too Fast" for my Galaxy Note. Though I disable email auto sync, it didn't help. I've also uninstall all the games, it didn't help too.

I've set the battery to power save mode.

Please help.

What app you install to get the radio switches in the top roll of your notification panel?

I also thought could be a Malware, but installed Avast antivirus, all the files are clean.

Only download the apps from Google Play, recently installed the following apps
https://play.google.com/store?hl=en

- Installed many apps from "Go....." eg: Go Tashmgr, Go Launcher etc. but have uninstalled all except Go Keyboard and Go Emoji
- Installed Battery Indicator, have uninstalled that too.
- Installed  Diskusage
- Installed Pdanet
- Installed Bump
- Installed Shazam
- Installed Photoshop express
- Also setup Wifi for Wireless

If you click "Download", where does it take you to and what does it try to install ?

It is a fact that when you install certain apps, the developers of such app(s) bundle addons which are non-critical to the operation of the app itself. Such addons include advertising (Google Ads is legal), Analytics, Developer Tools, Licensing, Social Gaming as well as Push Notification.

The message that you are receiving in your notification bar falls under Push Notification and perhaps Analytics.

1.) You need to narrow down which app is the culprit that bundles this addon. I personally use the app Addons Detector to sniff all my apps.

2.) Okay now you have found it, now what? Delete it. There is no other recourse unless you are capable of disabling the addon ph34r.gif sly.gif Anyway, a rogue app such as this should be avoided. Just delete it.

3.) Add a 1 star review on Google Play to whack the developer. furious.gif furious.gif

i think that is a bogey message to get u to download that app, just like some advert. Dun think your battery is really losing charge right? i get advert on my galaxy s2 notification bar too from time to time.

Go install Airpush Detector and find the offending apps sending these apps.

so far no need la. at least i dont. for the moment. when more and more viruses, malware, worms and trojans emerge to target android os then perhaps you should.

which is why i dont welcome Google Wallet. it as good as attracting hackers' attention.

for now however, i feel that anti virus apps are battery guzzlers and resource hogs particularly those that offer all in one solutions e.g. locate your phone in event of theft. tried before. ram usage can hit 70MB. knife.gif
