    Are there any viruses or other malware affecting the Droid RAZR Maxx HD that are known about? I have been having some problems with performance and I was hoping to save time by asking if you are aware of things I should know.. Thanks in advance!

    What you need to do is to check out some of the ad blocking/anti malware apps available for download from the Google Play Store.

    I never use this type of stuff on phone or tablet.
    If yoiu think you have an issue, install it, run it, delete it. IMO.

    No malware detected. I did a soft reset and the phone seems better. Thanks again!
