Default [Q] put a stop to google+

how can i prevent google plus from re installing itself on my phone every few days
its a rotten apple forced onto my device that runs all the time even though i have no google plus account/profile
i use titanium backup to uninstall it but before its gone too long its back...like a virus.
is the best thing just disabling it in the app manager?
id really rather not have this malicious software on my phone at all and short of going to aosp i cant think of any other options.

That's extremely odd. Just freeze it and you should be fine.

Also may be check your play store settings to not let apps update automatically. Wouldn't hurt to clear play store data. Seems something is sticking....never heard of this happening.
