My android tablet, a zoom, has started to download apk's at random without any initiation on my part. I have the don't allow foreign apk's to be installed thing checked so they can't get on to the tablet. Has anyone else caught this? I don't see anything else on the internet about it and I have done a search with Avast to no avail at finding anything.

I suppose that the easiest way to remove it is factory reset. If I do that does google remember all my apps and download them instantly?

Anyway any I'm grateful for any information.

  • Are you sure that they aren't the updates to the app you've already installed?

  • Yes, I have no app for hot girls uk installed. I can click the apk, it doesn't install but briefly boots. Pretty sure they are viruses. Commented Feb 16, 2013 at 14:46
  • Care to provide the logcat?

Go to Settings -> Backup & reset. Then check 'Backup my data' and 'Automatic restore'. An alternative is to use an app like Ultimate Backup or Titanium.


the Google does not saves your apps. I have tryed that. I was downloaded 380 mobile security and it detected 40 viruses. I pressed clean all and a rescaned: The viruses wasn't removed. I performed a factory reset and the viruses was removed. This is the solution when you have many viruses on android. My tablet model is:Maxwell maxtab H10
