Does anybody know why an android tablet would keep downloading apps? 

Ever since I bought it, it keeps downloading apps (usually named "Phone", "Phone1", "Phone2" or "Android Media Services" or just plain something with pics of asian chicks as icons) which then keep creating ad popups to download more apps, sometimes asking permission and sometimes just installing without permission. 

It helps for a bit to uninstall all the downloaded apps, but then later on it self installs something again that then starts the cycle all over again. 

What can I remove to make it stop?  I'm sure they sold me this tablet with adware on it, and I'm not happy. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had this problem.  Anyone been through it?

Can't blame you.  It's frustrating.  Yet it's so incredibly handy and useful!!

It's an artificial conundrum is what it is.
