Android - Uninstalled apps don't want to go away.

I uninstalled a bunch of junk apps on my Android (notably a bunch of AT&T promotional apps). A few hours after the uninstalls, my notification screen showed pending updates, which included fresh installation packages for many of the the junk apps I'd just uninstalled. How do I instruct my android that I want these apps uninstalled forever?

Think some apps cannot be uninstalled normally via "Settings" > "App Info"

But there is a choice within the "App Info" for each app, to "Disable" the app.

Go to the google play store and search for "app remover". Android can remember which apps have been installed previously, which can lead to erroneous update requests. An app remover should clear all data and cache associated with the app you want gone.
