    Are there any Note 5 apps that reinstall themselves, especially those "you" have installed? My husband installed some. They were removed now they are back and he said he didn't do it but that maybe they reinstalled on their own.

    Nope, there shouldn't be any apps that re-spawn once uninstalled/disabled. If he's seeing those, I'd run an Adware/Malware check on his phone as this probably could be the case, especially since app installations SHOULD prompt you to do so, and for them to be re-installed, you'd need to approve said installation.

    Only way I see this happening is if there was a system update and there were apps included with it. That would install apps 'without your consent' (you do have to agree to install the update, though).
