    I have had my Erid Droid for about a month now and it has worked perfectly until today. I downloaded the app Layers. After I did this my phone went into a continual reboot. It shuts down and then restarts itself. It is up and on for a few minutes and then shutdown and restarts again. It has been doing it for about 3 hours now. I shut it down, took out the battery and hoped for a hard reboot, but to no avail. I can only get as far as the "My downloads" screen to try to uninstall the app "Layers". Any suggestions on what I can do?

    I found the answer in the Tech forum. There seems to be some connection between this problem and the antivirus app. As sson as I uninstalled the app, my droid came back as it's reliable old self! I am again a happy Droid Lover!:icon_ banana:

    Interesting. I'm always saying that I don't believe antivirus is necessary however it doesn't hurt if you want to install it. I guess in some cases it does.
