1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have heard it's a good idea to add an antivirus program to Droid. Is that a recommended move and if so, any specific ones to suggest? Thanks.

    Who ever told you that, Please quit listening to them....

    None is needed, Do a search there are countless posts on how AV jacks up the phone....

    Plus there isn't one report of a Virus for Android OS.

    Sorry to bump this old thread, but how do you protect yourself if AV's are useless?

    I got hijacked yesterday and think I finally cleared it after doing a few factory resets. Now I want to prevent this from happening in the future.

    Thanks
