You have some sort of auto installer app added on by a 3rd party (likely your carrier). Do you see anything like this in your list of apps? Some mobile providers use clever names to try to hide them now. Uninstalling this will fix your issue.

It's always those carriers trying to get you to play games. With an unlocked phone those issues will go away
