    I just received a replacement S4 when I broke my screen. On my previous phone I had disabled a bunch of dumb stock apps such as Tripadvisor, Samsung watchon etc and I was never bothered by them. With the new phone, I uninstalled updates, stopped and disabled app. But every couple of days I get a bunch of popups asking me if I want Google to check for something or other that I have to decline about 4 times and then a bunch of little shopping bags show up in the bar at the top of the screen. When I pull down the drawer it says those apps were updated and I see that they are no longer disabled. This had happened 2 or 3 times in the past week. Very frustrating. I can't be bothered to root my phone how do I get this crap to stop bloating my phone? Is it because I disabled notifications too when I force stopped the app? Shouldn't it at least ask my permission before it does these updates?
    thanks!

    In the Play Store settings select "don't auto update" and see if that helps.
