    there are quite a few antivirus apps for android phones. not that I want any type of virus coming to my Droid but, has anyone used such apps and does it really protect it? how do u know its really working?

    try searching next time as this topic has been covered countless times

    android is built from linux, linux has no virus thus android has no virus's, so in other words anti virus's are pointless and just slow your phone down and waste your battery

    let me guess your next question is which task killer is the best?

    This. Task killer!??! TASK KILLER!? BURN THEM!! BURN THEM WITH FIRE!!!
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Anyway, just an fyi they are major resource hogs. You don't need an antivirus.

    Hi Hawaii.

    I don't believe that about no viruses! If you can hack it, you can make a virus. I use Lookout. I got it from the Market. I also use ATK paid version. I like it b/c for me it does help. Try the free version. I am talking about the one from Res Child, not the others out there.

    Hope this helps.
