In the google play store grab adaware. It's a great app that shows you what ad grabbers are already on your device and gives you the option to remove them.

What should she look for in her apps? They don't tell you" hello, I'm causing ads to randomly appear" Adaware does exactly that, they have a database of apps that cause the ads, they pinpoint the app and help you remove it.
