    How to find and remove app from Samsung Galaxy S4 phone

    Hello
    I purchased my Galaxy S4 phone yesterday...this is my first smart phone ever so its a steep learning curve for me. I am finding my way around slowly (with the help of my teenage kids) but something is baffling me and really would like help resolving this.
    I have recently acquired an app called 'PopupuiReceiver' which runs constantly on my Galaxy S4, won't let my phone sleep, drains the battery, comes back within seconds after I've stopped it in 'active applications', and, although it shows up in 'app killer' (and no other app killing app I've tried), won't allow me to send it into oblivion. Could anyone please tell me: what it is, how I might have acquired it, and, most importantly, how do I dump it?
    Thanks in advance for any advice proffered.
    Regards, Kate

    Also if it's an app your seeking, "Manager Pro III" is a good app so is "Super Tool box 10+" those are the ones I use in like forever. I like em cuz they do serve other purposes as well. Check em' out.

    PopupuiReceiver is needed by your phone, don't mess with it. There is some other reason for drain.

    Why is it needed by the phone? I've had my S4 for a few months now and the popupuireceiver just started poping up last week!

    This just started on my s4 mini after installing a sketchy looking universal remote app. Uninstalling the app didnt keep popupuireceiver from autostarting right after closing. However, after rebooting the phone it didn't launch again. Hope this helps somebody.
