I keep having generic apps get automatically put onto my homescreen. When I try to find them on the list of all apps so I can uninstall them, I dont see them anywhere. Could do be a virus, any suggestions on how to fix?

Are they really apps or are they links? They might be spam ads caused by an app you installed recently. Try an app called airpush detector in the play store (it's free). That will hopefully tell you if have a rogue app pushing ads to your desktop. Have you installed any apps recently?

+1 sounds more like links for ads... usually caused by a game trying to push more game sites to you.... Air PUsh is a great app to have.
