    Doesn't sound good. Cancel for sure.


    Only downloads you should be accepting is coming from an app update via Google Play or an official OTA update from your carrier/OEM.

    The rest I would consider bad.

    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I was "guest" at the time. This download started by itself. I'm just lucky I saw it. Is there an app to stop downloads unless I've ok'd them? I already have the settings to not allow downloads except from the Play Store and checked Verify Apps"

    Just like your home computer, stick to Web browsing on reputable sites and obtain all your Android 3rd party apps from Google Play or Amazon app store.
