Are these apps being downloaded from the Play store or from other sources?
The reason I ask is that as far as I am aware, most of the problems start when people download apps from outside of the Play Store.
To prevent apps that are not from the Play Store installing I would recommend selecting Settings then Applications then checking to make sure that Unknown Sources is un-ticked. This will reduce the risk of installing dodgy apps on your device.
