    Ty...I'll take u up on that actually. I'm a novice user, jus beginning to realize the potential and although I am somewhat tech savvy I'm not a "techy" so to speak. What r the advantages to rooting my fone and shud I even bother?

    rooting your phone will give you full contol of your phone. biggest reasons would be to use root apps like screen capture and wireless tether, removing pre installed apps that you don't use, or on the extreme side flashing new firmware/themes. it is worth it if you would be interested in any of those things but that's up to you. and if you decide to root, make sure you read as much as you can and ask questions if you get confused.

    lol i try. just an fyi there aren't really any viruses on the android platform, there have been a few instances of malware but they were discovered and snuffed out pretty quickly. so if you have the virus scanner constantly checking for viruses then it will be wasting some energy and resources.

    the only place you really have to worry about is the apps you download. get everything out of the market and not random websites, and pay attention to the permissions they ask for and you should be fine. also try to download apps that have a higher rating and lots of comments.
