    I've read many conflicting posts. People talk of android and malware and such. Should I be concerned with an AV program or not? I'm very particular about what goes on my DX, but what about other possible risks? Are the pgms worth anything?

    Discuss......

    I use Lookout, but more for the lost device part of it. It has anti virus, but it never freaks out on root stuff like AVG does.

    I wouldn't be concerned with an AV

    Forgive me for asking. I got tired of the search function on the droid app being less than agreeable when it comes to searches.
