I bought a new 7" Linsay Android Tablet a few months ago for around $50. One day I turn it on and it seems as if someone else is controlling it. I try to swipe across the screen and nothing happens. Random things get searched. It automatically browses all my photos and sometimes even goes into my camera. At first I thought it might have been hacked somehow but I factory reset the thing about 5 times, and I would thing by then any malware possibly downloaded or something would be gone. I'd appriciate any suggestions you may have, I just want to freely browse my tablet again. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum

A factory rest would/should have eliminated any malware. It sounds like you may have a digitizer problem and it makes it seem as if someone is touching the screen when they aren't. There may not be an easy fix.

A "dirty" screen can sometimes cause the symptoms you're experiencing. Try cleaning it before looking further.
