A netflix software update keeps popping up on my Tab. Netflix is not installed.

This update warns that it will change many things on the unit. How do I get rid of it?

Thanks for the reply B.Diddy,
I'll work on getting a screen shot of the notice when it next appears on my Tab3, then ,hopefully, learn how to post it!

Welcome to Android Central! Where are you seeing this update notification? Is it a typical app update notification in the notification bar, or is it an actual pop-up? If the latter, I'd be very suspicious, because apps shouldn't tell you those kinds of things. Can you show us a screenshot of that message? http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...ide-how-post-screenshots-android-central.html

Thanks for the quick answer B. I'll work on capturing a picture next time the notice appears on my Tab3. Then, hopefully, I'll post it!

B. Diddy,
I hope this is an actual image and not just what I'm seeing right now, which is "[attch=config]150141[/attach]".

That looks like a legitimate update from Samsung. It looks like it's meant to address that issue just in case you have Netflix installed. It might also contain other minor fixes--it's hard to believe that a 100 MB update would only be for Netflix.

I would just accept the update.

OK B, I'll go ahead and install it. I'm curious though about how if I wanted to I could access these types of files and delete them.
Thanks for your assistance.

These are essentially required Android updates, if you want to continue getting future updates you generally need to install each one. I suppose you could root and stop the updates, but its not clear why you wouldn't want them.
