I own a S10+. I have uninstalled the Android System Webview app a million times,  I have deselected "enable auto update," and it keeps randomly installing itself. HOW can I get this to stop?! So ridiculously annoying...

@mtnman8 Why are you trying to remove this?

Android WebView is a system component powered by Chrome that allows Android apps to display web content.

@mtnman8 It's a core part of the platform. I really doubt that webview is causing the issue on your phone. It is probably a 3rd party app causing your issue. 

Have you tried booting in safe mode? If the phone works fine while booted in safe mode, you know that a 3rd party app is causing the issue.

As soon as I uninstall it, my phone works properly. When it starts acting up again, I go check and it's re-installed. I have zero doubt it's caused by webview.

I might aim for a factory reset if you're still getting this issue. Of course backup your data but I would go over the 3rd party apps you have installed. The web view app is designed to work in the background without interfering. I'd also check how much of your storage is being used. I noticed on my S8 that the more storage I used the more slow my phone became.
