    you gotta be a bit more specific. are these apps you have or random apps? any apps you recently downloaded that might be the cause of this?

    Apps just download without me doing anything. About 3-4 times a day. They appear on my home screen. I deleted them but new ones keep showing up.

    apps appearing on your homescreen is a play store setting that you can turn off. these are shortcuts.

    You may also want to unselect (deselect?) "Allow automatic updating", to prevent updates you are unaware of.

    Well.... there are some crapware apps out there that I have read posts about. Apparently when you download them they load alot of crap on your phone. Delete them and they come back.

    In my past expereince, updates from the play store have not reinstalled the shortcuts on my screen.

    What are the app shortcuts that are getting put on your homescreen?
