    Default Got an Android smartphone??

    And do you have anti-virus software installed? No? Big mistake!!

    Trojan Disguised As Google Plus App Attacks Android Phones | www.kompyuteran.com

    That trojan is becoming more common - especially on certain websites, and there will be others, so beware. They can even take photographs without your knowledge.

    I run Norton Mobile Security, which seems to be the best out there at the moment. Check out AndroidMarket.

    Good to hear. Been using android for a little over a week now. Does this slow the phone down at all or drain the battery? The one I got already has a horrible battery life.

    Smart phones and battery life is always an issue. Never pass up an opportunity to plug it in.

    I finally settled on Dr.Web for Android Light and haven't looked back. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.drweb

    LOL! My son's AndroidX was infected after he clicked on a link "he thought was from a friend"! He then inserted it via usb into his brand spankIng new Win7 laptop an ended up with a ZA infection. While cleaning that from his Win7 (not realizing the infection came from his Android) he pulled his XP out of the closet and inserted the Android into the XP. Guess what happened! ROFLing!

    He does now!
