    Your issue seems to be caused due to the presence of a malware in your device. You could have a scan done on it and get this detected. If you haven’t found any, search for the app that you had installed last before this problem had come up. The apps that you get for free are said to have this problem of downloading other apps without permission. If you have any such app, try deleting these and see whether you get the problem again. There are other apps available at the app store that would help in detecting such apps. You could try purchasing apps like AddOns Detector.

    Some time when we are downloading some applications then with then we select all the boxes and the unwanted games being downloaded along with them..
    So, be attentive while downloading any application.......
    Other reason is that you system may be affected by the viruses..
    So, scan your system with a authentic anti virus.......
    Doing this thing you will be able to protect your system from downloading unwanted games.........

    Friend,without your permission there is not any automatic system in the device which installed
    the application on your device.
    All the permission related to installation on your device is granted by you,so there is not any
    possibility of automatic installation your device.

    But you said your have some unwanted apps which was not installed by you,so you can check
    the virus on your device because only virus can do the unwanted precess.

    So try to find the virus and remove it.
    Else you can hard reset the device once,this will refresh the device.
