    A few weeks ago I came across a problem where Play Store automatically opened while I was in other apps. This first happened when I was playing "fire rides" and then continued to happen in other apps as well. Play Store opens up and shows me apps to install and when I back out of it it just opens again like 3 seconds later and this goes on multiple times until I close the app. I've read about stuff like this in different forums where it could be malware, viruses, certain apps, security etc but i can't find anything that helps my problem....

    I have a samsung galaxy s7 edge and i've had it since march 2017

    Welcome to Android Central! It's most likely adware that came with one of the apps you installed. Uninstall apps one by one until the problem goes away. Antivirus apps won't do anything.

    Alright, might try that. Problem is that it doesn't happen all the time so it will be a while until I will notice a difference. Will start by uninstalling the app where it started.
