I recently purchased the Tab4 (8 inch). The preloaded stock File Manager app (called CZ File Manager by ChaoZhuo) serves ads that request your Paypal information. I will try to upload the photos in a following post. Loading the app takes you to the app's Home screen. See that little treasure chest in the bottom-right corner? If you click that, it takes you to the other picture I've included, which urges you to "Spin the Wheel" and transfer your "winnings" to Paypal.
I returned the tablet to Amazon. I tried calling Lenovo and was transferred to various departments. No one really could understand the issue not did they seem to care. They just kept asking for the serial #, which I did not have - as I tried to tell them multiple times - because I returned it.
Wondering if anyone else outthere encountered this and also if Lenovo intends to do anything abot it as it poses a risk to their customers.

This isn't something I'm familiar with, but additional information may help in figuring out what it is and where it comes from: who was the actual seller on Amazon? Amazon? Lenovo? Some other vendor?

A link to the Amazon page might be helpful.

FYI, this has come up before on the Android tablet forum:

Can you provide a link to the Amazon page in question? It would be helpful to know this. Thank you.

I have this problem too, I had been using my phone for a few days, unstalled a few updates and then today I went to open my file manager and I got a message saying it was disabled. I tried a few more times and a message came up saying it's CZ file manager and then a gaming slot machine wheel came up. What is going on? I've installed AVG antivirus but it didn't pick anything up. So what is the best way to solve this? Its annoying as it wasn't that cheap to buy here in Australia.
