I downloaded some games from the play store and now I am being bombarded with pop up ads in the middle of phone calls and while I'm texting. 3 times during this text. What to do? I already Uninstaller all the games and the play store and now it has really gone berserk.

@skydiver The quickest way to get rid of them would be to factory reset your phone. Be sure to backup any files or photos you want to keep before you do that. 

Alternatively, you could use Samsung's NotiStar and NiceCatch to determine exactly where those pop-ups are coming from. You could then remove the source. Both of those modules are part of Samsung's Good Lock application. All of them are available in the Galaxy store.
