"System" Ads on my phone - may have found a fix. Help?!

So a couple months ago I started getting ads on my phone, exclusively full screen pop up ads and video ads that come out of nowhere usually on my home screen & when I'm opening an app. I noticed awhile back when the ad would load, in the top corner it would say "system" with an icon that looks like the settings icon. I've tried everything, EXCEPT for factory reset, (which I'm not doing). To sum it up I went on my task manager today and clicked on downloads, and saw this "system" application, (there's also a browser bar app, idk if it's related??). It has ALL kinds of shady permissions for my phone, but I'm afraid to uninstall because idk if this is some kind of vidal app for my phone or if it's the "system" app that has been plaguing my phone with ads?! I can't post screenshots because it says I have to have 10 posts first?! Thanks! (& if it helps, I have a Galaxy Note 3)
