Thanks for the suggestion.
I have just turned off the auto-updates.
In case nobody knows how to do this, open Play Store, Click on the 3 horizontal lines (where you would type in what you were searching for), now scroll down to settings, Under the "General" heading (it's the first one at the time of writing), touch "Auto-Update" and then select "Do not auto-update Apps"
I'll post back with the results in a day or two.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
Never argue with stupid people, they'll just bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
If at first you do succeed, try not to look surprised.
