Hey guys I just noticed 2 apps installed on my phone that I did not install. It seemed to happen to a lot of people with the galaxy s2 as well based on the comments and I don't know how to remove them. Can anyone help me out please? Thanks for ur time. Also I didn't notice till I saw it under my downloaded apps.

There is no option to uninstall it in the market or under manage installed apps or whatever. It just shows the app needs to be updated which I am not gonna do

now, back to the serious stuff.

Remove the battery

Just boot into CWR and Wipe data / Wipe Cache / Wipe Dalvik

For sure fix if this pops up for you in the market. If you're rooted and have TiBackup, search for play store, and wipe its data. Done and done.
