Hello,
I have a tablet that is almost at full capacity, but still apps that are unasked for and undesired (LikinHero, other games, a settings system) download. As yet I see no way to make a list of things I don't want that would block them, even with the antivirus on this tablet. Is there a way to deal with this? Thanks for reading this.

Does it downloading the app or updating the app? can you clear this? see your app in play store, settings of my app.

Downloading or updating? It's definitely downloading. Every ten minutes I uninstall it, it seems.

That is looks like any malware virus in your phone. you have visited any spam link that's why your phone is acting like this. a clean factory reset will help you for this.

In some branded android (when you buy phone from telecom provider) you can't remove their aps. Only solution is clear rom install.

Ok. Is a factory reset something I can do by myself, or with the distributors ( a factory?)
