how do I get rid of a google add that keeps coming up on my screen after I have logged into my computer frances schuler 4/23/13 9:19 AM
when I boot up on my pc I get what looks like an ad from google, there is a picture of a little green robot, and it says "connect to your google account to receive your free apps for android, there is a sign in place there, I did not have a google account, I have nothing that is "android" so I don't need an android app, how do I make the thing stop coming on my pc ? I use google to look up things on the internet, I find that very good, and I have a way to get on Google to use the browser, is that whe I am getting that add ? should I go in and uninstall the google browser ?  please let me know. I use firefox because it is reputed to be the safest browser, and I want to be safe. thanks for help about this, I don't want to see that robot again !

Hello frances,
 
Check out this article in the "Bloomberg Business Week" that may put some light on the subject.

If you searched for 'appcaster' (visible in the screenshot), you'd see it has nothing to do with Google.
Checked for any addons in your browser that you didn't install yourself ?
