I used ES file Explorer for a few years now. I've seen GUI changes in its format and use to really like this app. However recently when I charge my Tab or Galx Note5 when the device sleeps it overrides the sleep screen and a pop up comes up sometimes saying DU CHARGER BOOST.. and now the annoying problem is this I have my devices setup to trusted places and trusted devices connected. But now when the screens sleep the adware malware app overrides this trusted places certificate and locks the screen anyways. Ok so this is my real problem, I've totally gone over my phone and tablet and DU CHARGER BOOST is not installed on my phone, nor are any of the DU apps! But however they are somehow overriding system critical certificates and permissions!!!!

What is really going on here ?? Please Help??**

Norton Mobile Security reported ES File Explorer as "safe". You have an app in your phone that is popping up those annoying ads. Try installing Norton Mobile Security to scan the phone for virus, malware or spyware. It is free for 30 days, after which if you like it, you can purchase it.
