i have not downloaded these videos from my laptop to my tablet. so i wonder why i am getting different youtube videos which i have not downloaded or copied to my computer and so it is not possible i would have transferred it to my tablet. most of the videos that just appear out of nowhere on my list of downloaded videos on my tablet has this different characters like russian or something. I actually don't know what language it is. but the videos are just different commercial we see on youtube videos before the videos choose play. so i am just wondering how those videos have ended up on my tablet on downloaded files on my tablet. even if i erase like 3 videos that i saw, another videos would just appear after some time maybe after a day or two another new videos would appear that i have not downloaded myself.

What you tablet OS - is it android or ios or other? What's your system OS - windows or Mac or Linux? If you are using Android , most probably you os has been infected or an app is running in the background. Check it once with anti virus like avast for android If you are using ios , you can simply restore or have a clean install and restore from backup. If it is a virus in windows or Mac then scan entire PC with anti virus.

Playbook - that is a product of blackberry. I never heard of any virus in blackberry product, check your apps once. I had ever used blackberry products, I have good knowledge and had used android, iPhone and even windows but blackberry is like entering into a new world and I like it. Mostly it would be an app in the background...certain app allows you to download video from video portal sites like YouTube. If you use a software to sync like iTunes for iPhone, then check the video list. Even you delete it in tablet then reappear on sync
