I have suddenly started getting lots of downloads from sdcard/Astrid/auto. They are adverts. How do I switch them off ?

  • That is probably from some app/game that show ads so it has to store it somewhere Mar 8 '17 at 18:19

    I'm really interested in helping you track this down. I work on a fork of Astrid called Tasks and I've had a few users complain that my app was showing advertisements (it doesn't have ads).

Download a terminal. In that terminal type cd /sdcard/Astrid/ Then run the command chmod 000 auto

That should do it!
