Obviously a problem with the computer (and with formatting of this question plus missing details to give further advice).

comment Is it possible to disable Google Play apps remote installation?
Afraid that's not possible – but am open to learn otherwise. For your concern about security: to remotely install apps that way, a person must have access to your account (and then, with physical access to your device, could install apps anyway; yes, I'm aware that "physical access" is a limiting factor here). So 1st security measure is keeping that from happening by keeping your credentials safe – and lock your computer/browser when logged-in or log-out when leaving it alone.

comment Rooting catch 22
Partly – depending for which part of your question ;) First, you'd like to take a look at our backup tag-wiki (I agree TiBu is the best, but having no root you might need to go for alternatives first). Second, is the requirement of an unlocked bootloader in order to root something specific to your device? That's unusual for rooting (but usual for installing a custom recovery or custom ROM).

comment how to unlock privacy protection password?
Mind to mention what anti-theft app you're using? That might play a role here. Also: Does it still ask for that password if you put back the original SIM? I assume so, but if not: any chance to get rid of it that way, maybe? Otherwise you might need to do a factory-reset – but depending on the app used, that might not help (e.g. if that anti-theft is installed as system app).

Glad to read! Maybe you can answer your own question then and include the basic steps done? Might help others in comparable situations. Thanks in advance!

comment Lost then re-found phone
You can first backup all your stuff while your original Google account is removed (see our backup tag-wiki for "ADB backups" and the questions linked at its end) – and also "dis-associate" the device from your account (via the Google Web interface, unauthorize it). Having everything backed up, setup your Google account again. If it now performs a factory-reset (which it might not, due to being disassociated/de-authorized), you can restore your data.

comment OS removed from Huawei P8 Lite: How to reinstall from TWRP bootloader?
Vorlon answer: "Yes." Confused? OK: Yes, you can download a custom ROM. And yes, you can also download an official ROM from Huawei. You could also download Linux, but that probably won't install :) As you still can boot into bootloader, you probably can install the stock ROM without problems. As you even can boot into your custom Recovery, you can even install any compatible custom ROM.

Btw: Just putting the term "engrils" in the search box of this site gives you this page. One click later you see the link @Firelord just gave you. Sometimes our search works really great :)

comment Things I can do as a root user to make my android faster
Possibly… um, just take a look at: I've rooted my phone. Now what? What do I gain from rooting? According to its link, that was the very first question ever asked on Android.SE :) Community-wiki and regularly updated, though. And um, what about checking our performance tag-wiki and the questions using that tag? :)

comment Lollipop - Apps not autostarting
OK, then it's something different. To get a clue (possibly at least), you could check the logs directly after/during a startup. Watch out for the "E" (errors) and "W" (warnings) lines especially.

comment Lollipop - Apps not autostarting
Could it be all the apps which are not working are installed on SD card – while those which do work are not?

You didn't mention which way you tried to perform a factory-reset. Have you checked with our factory-reset tag-wiki for alternative methods?

comment Cordova/Ionic run android not working inside of VMWare Workstation 11
By "import" I've meant exactly what you've described in the comment :) Well, congrats for solving the issue!!! Mind to answer your own question so others can profit from it? After doing so and accepting your answer, the question will turn up in results as being solved – which it doesn't if the solution is in a comment only ;)

comment How to move (ICSDroid) Calendars to the Phone section
Mustn't necessarily be owCloud (though it has its added values). If you're just after contacts & calendars, there's also Baïkal as plain DAV server, and some other lightweight variants like Radicale. See our sister site: Simple self-hosted sync system for Android contacts and calendar events

comment Null pointer exception in canvas while drawing custom view
This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.
