    Some apps get automatically downloaded and installed from unknown sources. If I try to uninstall those apps they start downloading again on getting internet connectivity. Factory reset or changing account passwords didn't help. In a dilemma since two months. Please help.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. On most Android devices, while powered on, press and hold Power until the Power Off menu appears. Press and hold the Power Off selection until the Safe Mode prompt appears. Tap OK.

    If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely that some malware installed itself to the system root. This is much harder to get rid of, and usually requires reinstalling the firmware.
