    I have recently got my first smartphone so I know nothing about them yet. Every time I look at the phone, apps have been added without my knowledge. These are not ads. They are everything from Games to cleaners and browsers. Why does it do this and how can I stop it? If I delete them they just appear again a few days later, and the phone is filling up with junk that I neither need nor want. The phone is an android 'cheapy' M-horse.

    Welcome to the forums. There might be a rouge app installing those other apps. I would suggest a factory reset, and slowly add your apps back. If you recently installed an app i would avoid that particular one.

    Check out this thread.

    Can you list what apps are being installed? Are you sure they aren't just existing apps on the phone being updated?

    With some manufacturers and carriers, puts what is called bloatware on their devices. These are apps that are associated with the manufacturer or carrier to promote their software.

    In sort, make sure it's not pre-installed apps updating their self. So that way, you don't go hunting for a invisible Rouge app.
