Has anyone else had this happen? I keep having apps disappearing, uninstalling themselves. I will click on an app icon only to be told that the app isn't installed. sometimes the app icon turns into the android robot icon.

I've not had this on this tablet, but it happened with my old Asus Slider sometimes. Two options: 1. downloaded from a less than reputable source and the tablet caught a virus. 2. apps with update failure.

Might install a freeware antivirus/malware program like AVG..

Definitely strange. l'm on Nova too and have never experienced this. Hope you get it sorted out somehow. Two things I would probably try would be to clear cache in recovery and then ensure auto backup and restore is disabled.

I only install from the play store with the exception of the xposed framework installer. But I will try some anti virus/malware and turning off backup/restore. Thanks.
