    android comes with a task killer built in, all task killers are useless. the first thing i did after i got my droid x from the rep at verizon was uninstall advance task killer from my phone(and root it of course z4root FTW)

    well it just roots it
    if you want stock android you have to flash a blurless rom, i recommend fission rom or rubix focused

    i personally like and dislike parts of blur so i am running tranquility 3.6
    it gives me all the good parts of blur with the speed and look of stock android

    Well, the most important reason is there are no viruses for Android. There are scant few for Linux and Android is a specialized Linux distro, so none. It'd be extremely hard to write an actual virus for Android, and it would most likely only affect rooted handsets anyway. Rooted devices are less than one percent of all Android devices, and will remain that way, so you have less than one percent of an extremely-difficult-to-code-a-virus-for platform that would be affected. It's just not worth it, especially when there are so many Windows boxes out there that are just wide open and ripe for the picking.

    The second most important (but far more immediate reason) is they're resource hogs! :) They're always running, which hits the CPU and affects battery life.

    Malware is not the same thing as a virus, but malware is up to the user to prevent. :)

    That made me smile. :)

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    Show me one antivirus app that protects against an unknown rootkit.

    Furthermore, show me a rootkit that can be installed on an android system without permission or on-site access.

    Finally, show me proof that one is in the wild.

    remember the app that ran up peoples bill by sending text messages to random numbers and calling random people in other counties, thats a rootkit

    rootkits have been on the market before and it wont surprise me if there was another one on there

    lookout will scan for keyloggers, rootkits, and other types of viruses/malware

    whether one is out in the wild or not is completely dependent on if someone has downloaded it or not

    imo its better safe than sorry
